May 14, 15 The Fab Four : Workshop with Robyn Spady Level: Beginner to Advanced
The Beatles are not the only “Fab Four”. Four-shaft looms are fabulous and frequently underestimated for their potential and versatility. Much of this value can be found in uncommon weave structures that are capable of producing distinctive and remarkable results. The workshop begins with introductory review of each of the 12 different four-shaft weave structures that covered during the workshop. In this round robin workshop, weave structures explored include: diversified plain weave, integrated plain weave, swivel, single block bead leno, corduroy, Bedford cord, deflected supplementary warp and cannelé.
