201 BARB GALLAGHER SHADOW WEAVE

EXPERIENCE: Suitable for anyone that can warp their loom and thread from a draft plus Rigid Heddle Loom Weavers

Workshop Description: Shadow Weave is a 2 color weave using a light and dark thread that alternate to create patterns consisting of horizontal and vertical lines. Students using a shaft loom (4 or 8 shaft samplers available) will weave a small sampler using several threading and/or treadling for maximum sampling!

Participants should bring: a warped shaft loom at least 8” wide, yarns to use for weft, and normal weaving tools and supplies. Rigid heddle weavers will set up their loom in class to weave a project using the log cabin pattern.

Homework: You can choose what yarn and what sett you prefer. Suggested 8/2 cotton or tencil at 20 epi, 5/2 cotton at 15 epi, 3/2 cotton at 12 epi. Complete threading information will be sent upon registration. Suggested for Rigid heddle weavers is 8/4 cotton sett at 10 dpi. .

Any questions, please email barb@weaversloft.com.

Material fee: $5, includes: handouts

Class Limit: 10

 

 

Additional Homework information:

Homework for SHADOW WEAVE workshop on Thursday 8/15/19

Barb Gallagher, instructor

 

Students have a choice of weaving on a 4 shaft, 8 shaft or rigid heddle loom.

 

I would appreciate if you would let me know which type of loom you’ll be using; i.e., 4 shaft, 8 shaft or rigid heddle– send an email to barb@weaversloft.com

 

For SHAFT LOOMS:

If you are weaving on a shaft loom, you will need to have your loom warped, threaded and ready to weave before class. Both 4 shaft and 8 shaft gamp threading drafts with tie-ups are included. You choose how long of a warp to put on your loom – but at least 2.5 – 3 yards.

Gamp threading drafts here

 

You do NOT need to use the same colors shown on the threadings – choose your own light/dark colors or use white or black for one of the colors –

 

You do NOT have to use all of the threadings shown. Both have 4 different threadings indicated by the 4 different colors. This is a gamp, so the more you do, the more fun you’ll have weaving!– but you can thread just one of the threadings if you want.

 

Suggested yarns and setts:

10/2 cotton @ 24 epi

8/2 cotton or tencel @ 20 epi

5/2 cotton @ 15 epi

3/2 cotton @ 12 epi

8/4 cotton @ 10 epi

 

FOR RIGID HEDDLE LOOMS

You will set up your loom in class! Bring assembled loom (of course), warping supplies; i.e. warping peg and large C clamp, threading tool, and paper to wind on with. Suggested yarn is 8/4 cotton which will use your 10 dent reed. Other options are above. You need 2 different colors – high contrast – one light and one dark.
