WEAVING RETREAT BLOCK ISLAND APRIL 25-28, 2013
For the advanced beginner and intermediate weaver, this class will show you how to create interesting, gorgeous textiles using a simple rigid heddle loom. We will explore the possibilities of plain weave: Color and weave effects, texture, stripes, checks, plaids, spaces in warp and weft, tapestry techniques, clasped weft. Judith’s clothing designs will be modeled during dinner on Friday night. In class, everyone will pick a warping plan from a hat and warp a loom for a sampler. You will weave, round-robin style, on each warp learning new tricks. See how the same techniques can look so different on different warps. On Sunday, we will cut up the pieces and make sample books. We will also look at simple clothing construction ideas and think about how to incorporate your newly learned tricks into garments.
I will be teaching a kumhimo workshop at Lexington Arts & Crafts Society, Lexington, Massachusetts. For more information on fees and availability, contact them:
