May 8-10, 2019 | "A Parallel Threading is the Weaver's Playground" with Robyn Spady

Guild Workshop

Wednesday 1:00-4:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday 9:00am-4:00 p.m., First Baptist Church

A parallel threading can provide a weaver with a multitude of options and patterns–from echo weaves and corkscrew twills to turned taqueté and network-drafted twills. Add on top of that weft variations in color and texture and a weaver will find themselves in a playground of possibilities. Workshop participants will pre-warp their loom from a selection of threadings and during the workshop enter into a journey of discovery and exploration of how to transform a parallel threading into a myriad of patterns. The workshop is a combination of presentation/discussion, weaving, and hands-on exercises. Emphasis will be on understanding the design and drafting processes to empower workshop participants to create their own patterns. (Note: This is not a round-robin style workshop. Participants will weave on their own loom.) Four-shafts minimum. Eight-shafts highly recommended.
