Description

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.
