Rep Weaving was a 10 week
course taught by Rosalie Neilson during the fall 2012 term at Oregon
College of Art and Craft. The weavers used the same 8-shaft draft, selecting
their own colorways and designing their own individual treadling plans. After
eight weeks into the course, three weavers had completed their runners. The
photos above show their results.

rayon floss was designed to be woven during the final two weeks, a 4-shaft rep
weave where two blocks alternate between woven cells and floats. Click on the
