On October 15-16, 2016, Rabbit will be teaching a class at the Mill on designing and drafting for pattern weaving. She developed this class for weavers of any level who wish to understand more about weave structures and how to design patterns.
The class starts with an overview of basic skills of reading weavers’ drafts and translating patterns from historical draft books into several weave structures. This class is more theory than practical weaving but in the end, this approach should help free you from having to use “cookbook” recipes for creating beautiful pattern work.
Some of the weave structures will be very familiar to students, like twills, satins, double cloth and block weaves, but it’s important that weavers be able to design their own work.
Cost for the weekend is $175.00
