Description

In this round-robin workshop format, we’ll explore both classic and nontraditional methods of rep weaving on 2 to 8 shafts. Every loom will be set up with a different draft and a variety of warp materials. Using block design of weave structures such as Krokbragd, Honeycomb, Shadow weaves and more, we can transfer the block design to rep weave and get a new look. Along with weaving instruction, we will discuss drafting, designing, and color choices and the possible uses for each finished piece. Students will go home with a portfolio of many different rep samples.
