This class is designed for students who have woven Summer and Winter and are familiar with its unique two-tied threading, treadling, tie ups and weaving ‘Styles’. We’ll review the basics to ensure that everyone is comfortable and ready to weave. We’ll examine profile drafting and translate profiles into thread-by-thread Summer and Winter drafts. Participants will be encouraged to design their own Summer and Winter drafts using profile drafting. We’ll go even deeper into multi-shaft polychrome Summer and Winter and what can be woven with several colors and multiple shuttles. Prior to class, I will provide each participant with a weaving draft. Participants must be ready to weave in all three sessions.
This class is designed for the highly motivated, independent weaver who has a fascination with Summer and Winter and is looking for guidance in understanding profile drafting in relation to this structure. It is ideal for weavers wishing to design their own Summer and Winter creations, as well as for weavers who seek interpreting profile drafts from Strickler and other sources.
