Explore the multitude of designs possible in warp-faced rep by using two different colorways and two different weights of weft. Learn an easy way to tie a wide warp onto the front cloth beam rod, in addition to a versatile treadling method to maximize the number of patterns. Discussions will focus on color, movement of blocks, skeleton tie-ups, and threading systems.
Drafts for 4- and 8-shaft looms will be sent in advance, along with color suggestions for the two different colorways of pattern and background. (Preliminary information will be sent via email). Weavers will warp and thread their looms prior to the workshop and work exclusively on their own loom throughout the 3-day workshop. Weavers will also learn the Cavandoli knot and participate in a color wrap session.
