Unlocking the Weaving Universe: Blocks and Profiles


This is a shaft loom workshop in which students bring their own warped looms. Instructions for warping will be sent out and we will hold a warping session before the workshop for anyone who needs help. During the workshop, we will rotate around through all the looms so everyone will have a chance to weave all the samples. Explore and learn how blocks work in weaving and unlock a whole universe of design possibilities, allowing you to develop your own patterns or adapt a weaving profile to your own project. It really is the key to the weaving universe! In this round robin workshop, we will explore several block weaves. This is a great opportunity to try a range of weaves including laces, twills, and some two-shuttle weaves. We will also look at different ways a draft is written, how to read them, and how you get from a profile draft to a threading draft.
