This workshop is based on Knisely's study and book on Huck Lace with Color and Weave Effects.

Huck Lace is normally woven with natural or white colored threads and rely on the texture of the warp and weft floats to create the pattern. When you add Color and Weave theory to the mix, you are able to elevate this weave structure to a whole new level of beautifully patterned fabric.

This workshop is designed to be woven as a pattern gamp or sampler. Different Color and Weave arrangement are threaded across the warp and as you weave through the treadling orders, dozens of attractive patterns develop.

Warping directions and a materal list will be sent out several weeks prior to the workshop.
