Huck with Color and Weave Effects
Dates: July 28 - July 30
Cost per ticket: $375
In this workshop we will be pushing the boundaries of traditional Huck Lace. For generations Huck Lace has been woven in cotton or linen with warp and weft threads of the same size and color, allowing the warp floats and weft floats to be the focus of the pattern. When you add Color and Weave theory to this familiar threading, a whole new world of patterning possibilities comes to life. Prior to the class, students will be asked to pick two contrasting colors of Perle cotton for us to warp their loom prior to the class. The warp draft is arranged in a gamp format so students can compare familiar Huck with the new color and weave application, and weave dozens of patterns for future reference. A wide range of treadling possibilities will be assigned during class. All materials included in tuition.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
For class dates that are full, please feel free to call us here at the studio and have your name place on the wait list.
