Drafting and Design Series- Turned Taquette

April 6 -May 18, 2021 ( 6 classes over 7 weeks)

12:00-4:00pm

$180

 

In this class we will explore  Turned Taquette. It is a double -faced weave  Warp colors alternate  allowing a choice of either color to be on the surface of a block.  Sometimes call Turned Summer and Winter  it’s  easier to weave  because is it uses one shuttle. Less dense  and more drapeable  than double weave and can be used for clothing, towels , etc.

 

If you attended the 2018-19   studio towel workshops,  I had  looms setup with this structure from Handwoven magazine.( See attached pictures).   Now let’s go a little deeper to create our own designs. Color is the key and it’s suitable for 4 harnesses and beyond.

 

 

The Path

Thursdays , May 20 – June 24, 2021

10-3 with a 45 minute lunch break

$180

 

This past year has been life changing of many of us. Now that spring has come and vaccines are in arms, there is a feeling of hope and renewal. In this class , we follow a path with camera in hand, to record what we see  and create a woven record  of the  journey whether around the block, in our head, or around the  virtual  world.

 

This   on-line class  requires only a  sketchbook , camera  and  a simple loom.  It is  designed to increase your color and tactile sensibility without  the stress of “ am I doing it right” and to explore new  techniques to help  express what you see or feel using what you have.   Sessions will include an introduction to the week’s assignment including visuals,  discussions ,readings , dyeing and finishing techniques and a check -in of work in progress. As you develop ideas, they will  be expressed as small woven pieces using simple structures. These may result as finished pieces  or as experiments that serve as stepping stones to future journeys . 

 

You will also develop a deeper connection to like minded weavers. Class includes students sharing their techniques and  thought processes and learning from each other.

 

Requirements-

Two or more harness loom ( rigid heddle is fine)  internet connection with ZOOM , a willingness to research and share processes as they develop  and a commitment to doing the work  between classes.

 

Class will include emailed handouts, videos and  lively discussion! Students will  work on small weavings that may develop into finished pieces or serve stepping stones to future journeys

 

 

The Fridays Series- mini sessions
