2023 Lecture Series with Jill Staubitz: Understanding Block Weaves and Profile Drafting
Lecture: Understanding Block Weaves and Profile Drafting with Jill Staubitz
How many times have you asked, “I understand how to weave it, but how did you come up with those tie ups?” Somehow the concept of block weaves and profile drafting mystifies weavers of all levels of weaving experience. Yet, by understanding the basic principles, a weaver can take a draft and substitute the structure of their choice to weave it in, (provided their loom has the number of shafts needed.) Understanding block weaves and profile drafting allows weavers to be in charge what they are weaving. This course will help you take that jump past Beyond Beginner and into creating your own designs!
Prerequisites: Intermediate to Advanced Weaver with loom at home. Must be able to read a draft, and weave on a Jack Style or "rising shed" style loom or a table loom. Class is taught using eight shaft concepts, but curious four-shafters are welcome.
