About

Jennifer Moore, a national leader in weaving, will guide you through a variety of double weave structures for the first three days. After we bid farewell to Jennifer, you'll have two more days to complete the full round robin of all the weaving structures. You will leave with your own samples from each loom. 

You will weave samples and study the theory behind a variety of structures such as:

  • Four-shaft structures: 
    • Four-color block rotation
    • Double-block layer exchange
    • Tubular log cabin
    • Overshot-patterned double weave
  • Eight-shaft structures:
    • Four-layer configurations
    • Double-width twill cloth
    • Invisible stitching
    • Decorative stitching
    • Two-block checkerboard
    • Two-block windows
    • Twill pick-up

Details

Looms need to be pre-warped before class begins. We'll be sharing looms in a round robin style and you'll need to pre-warp one loom. Drafts will sent to participants to use for warping a loom.

Project

This is a round robin weaving class. You'll leave with samples of a variety of double weave patterns.

Materials

A materials fee of $60, included in the cost of the class, covers class handouts and the fiber to warp the looms.

Prerequisites

You must be able to warp a loom and have basic weaving skills.

Class Policies

Ages 14 and up are welcome.
