April Workshop: Freeform Design on the Loom

Imagine weaving freeform designs, like damask or brocade, using a 4-shaft loom, with no pick-up stick! Create your own two-dimensional design patterns using a simple threading and unique treadling system.

In this two-day workshop, April 12-13, 2019, Nancy Marsh will teach the fundamentals of freeform twill, design theory, and how to make and use a cartoon. Once you know it, you can apply this technique to hand weaving everything from lightweight fabrics to heavy rugs.

Learn more and register for this workshop today!

Open to members and non-members. Students need basic weaving skills and to be able to warp a 4-shaft loom. 

Looking forward to February

While stormy winter weather over the weekend made it necessary to cancel our January 21 guild meeting, we look forward to our February 18 meeting and program on the technique and design possibilities of hooking with wool and other fabric strips. Stay warm!
