    Feeling hemmed in by the ho hum of parallels and perpendiculars? Join me in an adventure out of the straight and narrow! In an on-loom, round-robin format we will weave multiple samples in structures that allow the warp and weft to shift and move, creating a dizzying array of curves, undulations and textures. We will discuss techniques and tips for weaving these structures, do drafting exercises and examine many fabric samples.

    • Ability Level: Students must be able to warp their looms/read a weaving draft.
    • Materials Fee: $50.00 for Warp $26 for Draft Book ($8 for PDF version)
    • Students must bring: Notebook, pencil/paper, 2 shuttles, 4 bobbins, and miscellaneous weaving supplies such as scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape, etc.

      Are workshop participants expected to bring their 8-harness looms to the venue?

        Fran – forgive the tardy reply! I was moving, on vacation & at the state weaving conference all in May! Yes, you will bring your loom and will receive instructions in advance of the workshop. If you have any further questions, please email us at dallashandweavers@gmail.com for a speedier reply! Thanks for understanding!
