Workshop: Color & Design in Huck Lace Towels

  • Millersville University Millersville, PA (map)

Mid Atlantic Fiber Association Conference
Millersville University, Millersville, PA

The structure of Huck Lace provides a treasure trove of design for weavers where an 8-shaft loom can produce six blocks of design and a 4-shaft loom can produce multiple ways to combine warp and weft floats with plain weave. Exercises, documented by slide presentations, will show how to convert a profile draft into a threading and treadling plan. Learn how changing the tie-up plan creates new patterning within the same threading plan. Participants will use printed Design Pages and Transparent Overlays from Neilson’s book An Exaltation of Blocks to create patterns for a series of towels with three sections of Huck Lace separated by a one inch stripe of plain weave.
