Profile Drafting is a convenient way to visualize many weave structures that are built on the concept of blocks. I.e.; log cabin, shadow weave, double weave, turned twill, repp, bronson lace, and more. You will learn to draw and code a profile draft and  quickly create your own designs

for future use.

Then each student will pick a structure to set up on the loom. Structures include: log cabin, shadow weave, double cloth, repp, turned taquette. The class will decide if they want to do individual projects or sample all warps in round -robin fashion.

In this two-day workshop, learn to weave a lightweight but warm scarf on a rigid heddle loom.  A rigid heddle loom is a simple frame loom with a slot and hole mechanism through which the warp yarns are threaded and allow the yarns to be raised and lowered for weaving. It is portable and can accommodate a variety of yarns and materials.

Each student will be provided with their own loom and will learn how to design a scarf, thread the loom, weave and finish their project. Students are asked to bring one skein of sport or worsted weight yarn. The instructor provides warp yarns and looms. A complete supplies list will be sent upon registration.
