Description

Laptop and Looms

Friday, November 3 and Saturday, November 4, 9am–4pm both days

Instructor: Marg Coe

Cost: WGGC Member: $150 / Non-member: $175
No materials fee. Each participant should bring a laptop and note taking materials. Software is provided and downloaded to your compatible device before the workshop.
Skill level: Participants need to have rudimentary skiils in both weaving and computers. This will be of interest to weavers with looms of 4 or more shafts.

Conquer drafts and create exciting designs with ease! The focus is not what a weave design program "does" (though certainly that is included) but what we can do with it and how computers have enabled us to weave in a way we could never have envisioned in the past. Learn weave design, not by following a program manual, but by creating exciting designs for weaving on a 4 to 8 shaft loom: 4-block double weave on 4 shafts, block substitution, name drafting, snowflake twills, turned drafts... The variety of topics is dependent on the pace of the participants. Frequently, we are able to tackle some methods such as interleaving, parallel and network threading, double weaves, thick 'n thin, lace, and tied threadings. This workshop will be of interest to weavers with looms of four or more shafts.

Workshop limit: 16
