Introduction to Summer/Winter

"Weave Along" Virtual Class

Introduction to Summer/Winter: "Weave Along" A 3 Part Virtual Class

Perfect for students who have a loom at home and would like a "deep dive" into this unique structure within a virtual class setting. Over the course of three sessions, we will focus on Four Shaft Summer and Winter as a two-tied unit weave with its unique ‘styles or fashions’. We’ll examine the threading units, tie ups and treadling sequences of this popular structure, explore profile drafts, and discuss S/W’s role as a block weave AND a unit weave. Prior to class, each participant will be sent a four shaft Summer and Winter draft to dress their loom. Once in class, students will have weaving breaks to enhance their understanding through hands-on weaving. Students will be encouraged to share their results, warts and all, with their fellow weavers. 

Prerequisites: This is a virtual class for ‘Beyond Beginner to Intermediate’ level students. In addition to computer/Zoom access, students must have access to a four shaft loom during class, be familiar with reading and understanding a weaving draft, be comfortable with dressing their own loom, and have on-loom weaving experience. 

 

Note: An Advanced Summer and Winter “Weave Along” Three-Session Class will be offered later this winter, focusing on eight shafts, with further emphasis on profile drafting and designing Summer and Winter cloth.
