Class Description

This class will cover the principles of summer and winter. We shall discuss different

 treadling methods associated with this weave structure and the effect they have 

on the appearance of the cloth. In order to gain a clear understanding of how the 

tie-up is developed, each participant will create a 6-block profile draft on paper 

and then work out the tie-up required to weave that design. There will be an 

on-loom component to the workshop, either a round robin or gamp (still to be 

determined). Participants will need to dress their 4- or 8-shaft loom in advance 

of the workshop. You will receive instructions for preparation with your registration



The Guild has two looms available for loan to those who don't have portable 

workshop looms! Also,you can ask for an Education Grant to help defray the 

cost of attending!
