(128) “Ripped” About Rep Weaves

This overview documents both the design process and practical details of the weave structure known as warp-faced rep, oftentimes referred to by the Swedish word for rep mat or ripsmatta. See how curves from nature—a wren, a crow, a leaf, a frozen river seen from an airplane window—inspire the creation of colorful wall hangings, table runners, and rugs. Projects range from 4 to 16-shafts. Also highlighted in this session will be the Design book An Exaltation of Blocks with its interactive design pages and transparent overlays.
