Workshop: 2 - 3 days
Seminar: 2 - 3 hours
Program: 1 hour
Learn weave design, not by following a program manual, but by creating your own exciting designs for weaving on 4, 8, or more shafts.
Levels include: 4-block double weave on 4 shafts, block substitution, namedrafting, snowflake twills, turned drafts, deflected double weave, network drafting, the Corris Effect . . . The variety of topics is solely dependent on the pace of participants, frequently we are able to tackle topics from the next level. Participants need to have rudimentary skills in both weaving and computers!
Level 1: The focus is not on what a weave design program "does" (though certainly that is included) but what we can do with it. How computers have enabled us to weave in a way we could never have envisioned in the past. Of interest to weavers with looms of 4 or more shafts.
Level 2: Introduces such design topics as interleaving, parallel and network threadings, double weaves, thick 'n thin, lace, and tied threadings. Time permitting, creating liftplans with digital design programs is introduced. Suitable for quick learners or those with experience either in computers or weaving. Of interest to weavers with looms of 4 or more shafts.
Level 3: Extensive exploration of designing liftplans using graphics programs such as Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe® Photoshop® Elements. Topics include tied weaves, weaving text, and imagery. Of interest to weavers with looms of 16 shafts or more.
User-friendly workshops, seminars, and programs offered at guilds, and regional and national conferences. Software required for the workshop is installed on participants' laptops in advance. Detailed instructions are provided prior to the workshop.
