I will be teaching a course that follows the Handweaver's Pattern Directory. This course will be taught through Weavolution meeting every few weeks on Saturdays from noon to 1:30 pm starting September 3, 2011. There will be five class sessions, plus time in between to complete homework and get help when necessary. This class will show you how simple and easy it is to work through a variety of weaves on the same warp! The class will teach you how to weave the following:
- Color & Weave Effects in Plain Weave
- Twill, Point Twill, and work with Twill Blocks (for those with 6 shafts or more)
- Double Weave (two layers, double width, tubular) Double width is good for blankets! Tubular can be turned into pillows or
- Summer and Winter
You do not have the own the Handweaver's Pattern Directory, but those who do can reference it. Those who own the Handweaver's Pattern book may find it helpfu as well.
The class will include real time demonstrations and will allow time for everyone to weave together, ask questions and get answers!
