Students will have the opportunity to explore all traditional approaches to traditional double weave including weaving layers and pattern, pick up for imagery, its use in 3 dimensional work etc. Setting up a loom for double weave also allows one to weave warp faced textiles. Explore these individually or in combination with double weave. Other friends include colonial overshot, 4 colour double weave, stitched cloth, pique and even lampas. The workshop covers both theory and practical.
Experience: Beyond beginner. Beginner weavers may take the opportunity to explore basic double weave.
Loom: 8 predominantly though 16 shafts are available for the more adventurous.
