Now that I Know How to Weave, What Am I Going to Weave?
This is a project class, from those who are overwhelmed by the choices, or can't
figure out how to start. Developing a weaving routine allows us to prioritize choices
and focus on what we want to do... next.
It's 'Just' Plain Weave!
From rep to tabby to tapestry. From rugs to towels to shawls. From natural colored
fleece to a myriad of crazy colors. The simplest intersection is versatile after all.
Weaving Puppets
Who likes to sample? Not me! Well.. not until I discovered puppets! We discuss how
puppets can be woven on a variety of looms and warps, and how they can be
finished. But we also discuss how to use puppets to learn about structures, fibers,
color... or anything we want to! (This is suitable for frame loom weaving).
Drafting (Electronic and Otherwise)
Drafting is the paper representation of weaving and it is the basis for understanding
structures and designing. We need to learn how to draft "by hand", but then we can
take advantage of computers (author's simple drafting program available free to
students).
Twills: Flip them, Break them, Stretch them
Take a straight twill, manipulate it and you will invent the rest of the twills.
Combine them, switch treadling and the design possibilities are almost infinite.
The Building Blocks
Supplementary weft blocks, unit blocks, tied-weaves, are all different, yet they share
the "block" look; by understanding the structures, we can play with the blocks and
build a fabric. Name drafts are just one way to build with blocks.
Middle Age Monks Didn't Know How to Read
But wrote beautifully. And you can weave without really understanding about
weaving. By understanding structure, we can design our own cloth. We take some
structures and learn what it means to really know them; then we design with them.
The Transition from 4 to More
Understanding structures makes it possible to adapt them from 4 shafts to more.
We "discover" the threading and treadling rules of structures on 4 shafts and apply
them to those extra looms we've added on the back.
How to Make an "Ugly" Color Disappear
Not by covering it! And not by overdying it! We learn color theory by taking an "ugly"
color and making it look good.
Fiber Contrast
We study samples woven from wool, cotton, silk and linen and compare and
contrast their properties: how they should be sett, take-up, shrinkage, as well as
suitability of the each fiber for various purposes.
Designing A Cloth
A cloth is influenced by the fiber, the fiber preparation, the yarn, the color, the
weave structure, the design — and all of these factors interact and influence each
other. We study about these interactions and these influences, so we can learn how
to design a good cloth for every project.
Cotton: the Southern Fabric
The characteristics of cotton make it a wonderful choice for warm weather. But
cotton needs some special considerations so that the final product takes advantage
of cotton’s properties. We learn about mercerized and unmercerized cottons,
different twists, setts for different structures, and how to mix cotton with other
fibers for lighter fabrics.
