(132) The Technique of Split-shed Weaving

Split-shed weaving allows one to break out of blocks, create freeform designs and blend colors, using only 4 shafts. There are dozens of split-shed weave structure combinations, all using continuous wefts. This lecture and demonstration will introduce students to split-shed weaving, including how to create a split shed on different loom types, how to make a cartoon on cloth that never wrinkles, and the myriad weave structures that can be created using a split shed on 4 shafts. Deborah will also discuss her artistic journey, including a presentation of her artwork and a discussion of her creative process. A video demonstration of the split-shed weaving process will be included.
