Advance your skills in
twills, using colour! The course
objective is to push your twills through the use of colour, while developing
proper technique to pull it off flawlessly.
In a 3-day hands on
workshop we will talk all about twills and review their full spectrum of
potential. The course will explore how
colour can be used to manipulate our twills, giving them new breadth and added
depth. We will also cover how to use
multiple shuttles, and still maintain a clean selvedge.
You will plan, warp
and weave a small project. All skill levels
are welcomed. If you’ve never woven before,
but would still like to come out and play, the instructor will help you set up
Materials: We will work primarily with 2/8 cotton. You may bring your own or purchase it from
Material fee: $10 (includes warp). Additional weft materials may be bought from the instructor or
bring your own yarns to sample (8/2 cotton is recommended).
