Kathrin Weber
"Focus on the Warp: Color, Design, Technique"

Kimball-Jenkins Estate Carriage House
266 N. Main Street, Concord, NH 03301


Registration for current New Hampshire Weavers' Guild members will open 

on Thursday, February 15th.


Beginning Thursday, March 15th, if space permits, registration will be opened 

to non-Guild members.


Workshop Fee: NHWG members—$265.00; Non-NHWG members—$275.00
Materials fee: $45.00 to be paid to the instructor.


THE GOAL FOR THIS WORKSHOP:
• Work with fun and playful hand-dyed warps.
• Learn to work effectively and efficiently with multiple warp chains 

which aid in creative designing at the loom.
• Develop new techniques for more spontaneity and 

confidence in the creation of your fabric.


For three days we will be immersed in color and a bit of creative chaos. 

Kathrin will guide you as you surprise yourself with thefabric you make.


SPECIFICALLY:
• You will learn non-traditional techniques that allow you to design

at the loom. You will use instructor provided space-dyed warps in which 

the colors flow and change, creating designs that appear complex in planning, 

but actually spring from making flexible and intuitive decisions as you work.
• These new methods to designing and problem solving will leave the door 

open to creating fabrics that are beyond your original intent and plan. 

Students will design, setup and weave during the workshop 

(this is not a round robin class.) 

Although the focus of this workshop is on process, students will have 

four yards of fabric to be used as they choose.

Students need to know how to warp a loom and read a draft. 

You will need to bring a loom threaded with a dummy warp plus weaving tools. 

The instructor will send out instructions on dummy warps.
Kathrin will supply space-dyed cotton four and one half yard warps 

in a wide variety of colorways, hues, and tones. 

She will bring many more than we actually need for the workshop so that 

students will have ample choice to use in class as well as optional warps
for purchase to take home for future projects. 

She will also bring an equal number of solid warps for contrasting background 

design and handouts for future reference.


TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP, YOU MUST:
• Have a current NHWG membership. If your membership is not current 

at the time of receipt of the registration, your registration will not be considered 

until membership is paid and the membership chairman informs the workshop 

chairman that payment has been received.

• Enclose full payment for the workshop only

Denise Kovnat
Echo Weave and Turned Taquete for 4 Shafts and More

Kimball-Jenkins Estate Carriage House
266 N. Main Street, Concord, NH 03301


Registration for current New Hampshire Weavers' Guild members will open TBD.

Working with a variety of tie-ups and treadlings, you will weave a series of designs in Echo Weave and Turned Taquete. With Echo Weave, the possibilities are endless -- using treadlings with curves, advanced-twill treadlings, point-twill treadlings, tromp as writ, and more. And, simply by adding tabby to your treadling, you can weave Turned Taqueté, which also allows for a wealth of designs. The goal of this workshop is to broaden your understanding of extended parallel threading -- the subject of Stubenitsky's book -- and its possibilities.
