Twill Towels- Week 2
Dates: January 19 - January 22
Cost per ticket: $425
This is the first in the series of classes called Towels, Vol 1, 2, 3, & 4. The thought behind these classes is to incorporate ways for students to learn more about weave structures and patterning along with projects that everyone loves to weave and use. The first class Towels Vol 1 – The Twills, will explore twills and twill variations. The other classes are Towels, Vol 2 – Checks, stripes and plaids, Vol 3 – Lace and lacey type Weaves, Vol 4 – Miscellaneous Weaves. Be sure to check the class schedule and over the next several years you could end up with 3 to 4 dozen interesting and educational towels.
The first in a series of towel classes, Towels Vol. 1 – The Twills, will explore twills and twill variations. We will have a dozen warps set up to weave. You will learn about straight twill, point twill, rosepath, M’s & W’s, turned twills, undulating twills, herringbone, broken twill and twills on 4 and 8 shaft looms. During the 4 day class students will weave in a round robin format so that at the end of the class you should have 12 different towels to take home and finish. You’ll also have an opportunity to try different types and sizes of thread. Class limited to 6
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
