An Exaltation of Blocks

November 9, 2017, 9:30am – 3:30pm
Teleraña Guild
Phoenix, Arizona

Block designs consist of black and white blocks on grid paper, where black is considered the pattern block and white the background block. Find out how one weaver used the binary number system and the textures of 4-shaft shaft huck lace to develop the definitive number of two-block designs, and how these simple designs become the building blocks of more elaborate patterns. The design sessions allow weavers to construct and deconstruct complex patterns with component motifs from two different sets of Design Pages and Transparent Overlays.
