This workshop is intended to help you think beyond the obvious possibilities of a given threading and treadling. A perfect example is the numerous treadling’s you find for a threading draft in your favorite weavers pattern book. You thread your warp to the desired pattern draft and then treadle it several different ways to achieve different patterns. But what if you could thread your loom to a simple threading and weave several different structures? This exactly what we will do on a simple eight shaft straight draw twill threading.
All materials are included with tuition.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
