Due to COVID-19, FTWG cancelled its 2022 Conference two months before it was scheduled to start. As a result, this workshop was not taught in 2022.

In contrast to most weaves which are woven on a plane horizontal to the loom, wedge weave is woven on the diagonal. This results in a weft-faced weaving with many distinctive characteristics and exciting design potential. You will work on your own prewarped loom to explore wedge weave through hands on experience as well as with detailed handouts and images.
Registration Fee $290 for FTWG members and $320 for all others

Materials Fee includes: handouts, chipboard loom, yarn, and plastic needle for sample loom
Students to Bring
