(121) Pictures, Piles, Potpourri, and Perplexing Curiosities

In this round-robin workshop, participants will expand their knowledge and experience in weave structures they may have heard of, but may not have woven. It’s a surefire weaving adventure and challenging journey of warp and weft for intermediate-to-advanced weavers, and even adventure-seeking beginners.

Structures covered include swivel and bead leno, corduroy, velvet, samitum, corkscrew twills, and Beiderwand . . . and a couple of other weave structures thrown in for fun. This workshop is a combination of hands-on weaving and lecture and discussion. At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with a complete sample notebook.
