Registration Deadline: September 30, 2021
This weavers’ taste test will look at doubles: double weave, double width, double faced, deflected double weave, double two tie, and more. Since these topics are related thematically rather than structurally, lectures will be light on theory and we’ll have more time than usual to focus on the actual process of weaving itself.
This smorgasbord of samples also provides an opportunity for discussions and demonstrations designed to help students refine their weaving technique, learn advanced weaving skills, increase their understanding of written standard and profile drafts, and gain comfort and confidence at the loom.
Double Trouble is designed for students who already have some experience in weaving and drafting.
