October 26-27, 2019 Chris Hammel: Summer & Winter



October 26 & 27, 2019

Chris Hammel 

"Summer and Winter Workshop"

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.

Chris Hammel has been weaving for over twenty years. In 1998, she completed a six-year Master Weaver Program at Hill Institute in Florence, MA. Her work has been published in Handwoven and Complex Weavers Journal. She has taught classes at Webs in Northampton, MA, Fiber Arts Center in Amherst, MA, Snow Farm in Williamsburg, MA and The New England Weavers Seminar 2005, 2007 (and 2013). In 2004, Chris became the Director of Weaving at Hill Institute. In an earlier part of her life, she taught high school Latin and art. She holds BA and MA degrees in Latin Language and Literature from Smith College and University of Iowa, respectively.
