Mystery Weave, Deflected Double Weave, Cell Weave - it has as many names as possibilities according to Doramay Keasbey. In this workshop we explore the dramatic possibilities of deflected double weave using the full array of 64 colors available in the Harrisville Shetland line. Each participant will be provided with an individual design and full instructions for warping and weaving a sampler and scarf in class.
Class participants will begin by winding a warp and weaving their warps as-drawn-in, in order get a feel for the structure. Slide presentations will include detailed explanations of the structure with drafts and many examples. Experimenting with the myriad variations possible on a single threading by changing the tie-up, treadling and weft colors to create a mini sampler will be explored. Finally choosing a tie-up/treadling/colorway from your sampler will be used to weave a scarf. Drafting sessions will be held daily.
Skill Level: Advanced beginner. Students must be able to warp a floor loom, change the tie-up and follow a weaving draft.
