#106 Tom Knisely- Weaving Multiple Patterns on a Straight 8 Threading Three full days Wed-Fri  9am-4pm  Bldg 9 Center  $300

Skill level:  Intermediate

Workshop Description:  Weaver's dream of the draft that will give them numerous pattern possibilities on just one threading. It might be considered a total gift if you could weave a multiple number of structures on just one threading. I mean, not just changing out the treadling sequence or thread size and color. I am talking about weaving Rose Path, Waffle Weave, Bronson Lace Monk's Belt and a Broken Twill on the same threading. You can also combine the structures within the same piece! Imagine a table runner with a simple hem, then weaving twill for a desired length, then change to a Monk's Belt border and finally, change out the piece again for a center field of a different weave structure such as Huck Lace. Finish your runner by reversing the beginning woven pattern to complete the piece. It's all possible just by changing the tie ups. Dozens of patterns/structures are possible as long as you stick to the 8 thread repeat in your structure. The secret is in the warp threads lifting sequence. Let me show you how to open the door to a whole new way of thinking about how to thread your loom and its possibilities. You will be weaving a sampler during the workshop. You will be changing the tie up frequently on a floor loom. A table loom will weave slower, but will be easier on your knees. You will weave at your own pace. We will take breaks for lecture times so that I can explain how to rethink the tie ups for your straight 8 threading.

Students should bring: - an 8 shaft loom, warped, spread and ready to weave. - Notebook with pen, pencil, colored pencils and 4 or 5 to the inch graph paper - weft yarns - 2 boat shuttles with bobbins - bobbin winder (can be shared) - scissors - tape measure - T pins - tapestry needle - hang tags - camera to take photos of anything you want to remember

Homework:  Warp loom and bring yarns as stated on the draft which will be emailed to registered students.
