Level: Intermediate Description of Workshop Levels
Technique: Weaving

This course has been designed for those weavers who are looking for a more organic approach to adding visual texture to their woven fabrics. In this class students will be introduced to a technique of weaving that utilizes 2 separate shuttles of yarn that intersect with one another within the shed to create one-of-a-kind patterning you as the weaver control. Students will gain insight into planning a project using clasped weft, appropriate applications, and tips/tricks to control your yarns to complete a scarf or pillow.

Technique: Weaving

Most weavers think of the hem stitch solely for beginning and ending our handwoven piece to secure weft, but there are so many more applications!

This course will examine hem stitching all the way from a beginning perspective through creative uses within the interior of your weaving with embroidery type finishes.
