Cost $80 Member $100 Non-Member (will open to non-members on 9/15 if not full)
Location: Virtual Workshop using Zoom
Maximum Number of Participants: 15
Workshop Level: Advanced beginner: participants must know how to warp a loom and set up for a 4-shaft or 8-shaft draft.
Workshop Description: Understanding twills provides a basis for learning many other weave structures, as well as providing endless possibilities for creative variations. The first session will review instructions that were sent ahead of time for warp planning and threading, and guide weavers in planning a gamp for their own loom. (The wider the loom, the more different threadings that can be included.) Weavers will have one week to plan and warp their loom. The second session will review tie-up and treadling orders. 4-shaft weavers will make at least two gamps using two different tie-ups; 8-shaft weavers will have more options. The third session will review results and discuss how to use our gamps as resources for planning future projects.
