Tapestry Weaving - TwillTake your tapestry weaving skills beyond the basics and learn how to use twill in your weavings.
SCHEDULE:1/16 | 6:30PM-9:30PM
In this continued introduction to tapestry weaving we will dive into reading and creating pattern drafts with the simplest of pattern sequences, Twill! Twill is used to create various designs with diagonal weaving that results in diamond motifs. Students will explore elevating their weaving skills by creating their own twill designs, as well as learning to read and weave based off pre-designed pattern drafts. Melonie will cover different weft techniques, such as supplementary wefts, to allow designs to pop, as well as selecting yarn, color compositions, and texture. This workshop is a continuation class from the beginner Tapestry Weaving and is perfect for beginner+ and intermediate weavers alike.
Skills + Materials
This is a beginner+/intermediate workshop and some weaving knowledge is needed to have a fun, productive time. Students will bring-their-own looms (anything similar to this is great). All looms should come warped and ready to weave on. Any size frame loom is a-ok - Melonie will demonstrate on a 13" x 10" loom. There will be no warping instructions in this class. However, a warping video can be provided should you need some assistance in preparation! The workshop fee includes lots of weft yarns to weave and tinker with.
We're looking forward to sharing space with you! If you haven't had a chance to read our Community Commitment, pop over to the website and read about how we agree to share space. Feel free to reach out to the shop if you have any questions along the way - we're excited to welcome you wherever you may be on the learning curve.
