This is a chance for 4 shaft weaving to Sizzle! Students will be given a choice of several 4-shaft threading drafts in which to dress their loom for the workshop. This is for a sampler to be woven during class.
Experiment with treadlings, tie-ups and color to experience the subtlety and/or vibrance of Crackle Weave. Also learn the fundamentals of drafting crackle to understand the structure and design your own Crackle Weave. More sizzling occurs as we learn Polychrome treadlings, and use many colors.
The class will be designed for working at home from your stash.
Supplies: Warp a FL loom prior to class, or bring a loom which has been warped. Threading drafts will be emailed to students a month before class. Use 10/2 or 8/2 or 5/2 cotton Also bring scissors, at least 3 shuttles, bobbins, note taking supplies, and anything else you need for a weaving class. You will need to bring more of what you used for the warp, along with other yarns in colors to coordinate. These should be the same size as your warp, and a few a little heavier. Solid colors work best.Location: Your homeDays:
