(145) FULL ~ Ikat II: Planning, Stretching & Wrapping

This class will provide a basic template and teach the first set of skills required for creating a warp ikat scarf. Mary will explain the mathematics of planning a woven warp ikat fabric, guide students through warp selection and measurement, and demonstrate various techniques and materials used for wrapping ikat warp threads.

Students will be encouraged to follow along at home, using pre-purchased materials and their own equipment. (Dyeing, unwrapping threads, warping the loom, warp shifting, and weaving ikat cloth will be covered in the Ikat III and Ikat IV classes, completing the Ikat series.)
