This class is now full. Please check back for later dates.

This class introduces the popular new application, Repper, as an exciting design aid for repeat patterns. Patterns designed in Repper will be further processed in Photoshop and then copied to your weaving software of choice for weaving on a computer-assisted dobby loom or table loom. For 16 shafts or more. For weavers with a familiarity with dobby looms and a knowledge of at least one weaving software program.


What to Bring: 


 computer with a mic, pencil & paper.


Software and reference notes:

  1. The demos will be made with Photoshop. Photoshop Elements can also be used for this process, but will not be specifically described in the class.
  2. Repper can be purchased online at http://repperpatterns.com/. There is also a free trial demo. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
  3. Any weaving software that allows graphic input is suitable: Fiberworks PCW, pixeLoom, ProWeave, WeaveIt Pro, WeaveMaker, or WeavePoint.
  4. Optional for further reference: The Liftplan Connection by Schlein is a thorough explanation of the use of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements for dobby design. It may be purchased at www.Lulu.com.
