Rep Weave

About class

Many of you have asked for a Warpface workshop based on the type of rugs that Tom has woven for Handwoven and Weavers magazines. Rep Weave is translated from Ripsatta, meaning warp face pattern weaves. During this three day workshop, students will weave mat-size samples in a round robin format. You will learn how to calculate for these dense rugs. We’ll discuss the threading systems associated with Rep Weaves and you will learn to draft and weave beautiful rugs for 2, 4 and 8 shafts. Finishing techniques will be discussed towards the end of the class and students will go home with 13 different sample mats.
