Color and Design in Warp-Faced Rep (Workshop)

Intermountain Weavers Conference, Durango Colorado

Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28, 2019 – 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

Explore the multitude of designs possible in Warp-faced Rep by using two different colorways and two different weights of weft. Learn an easy way to tie a wide warp onto the front cloth beam rod, in addition to a versatile treadling method to maximize the number of patterns. Discussions will focus on color, movement of blocks, skeleton tie-ups, and threading systems. Drafts for 4- and 8-shaft looms will be sent in advance upon registration, along with color suggestions for the two different colorways of pattern and background. Weavers will warp and thread their looms prior to the workshop and work exclusively on their own looms throughout the 3-day workshop. Weavers will also learn the Cavandoli knot and participate in a color wrap session.

Materials fee: $30 – two coil bound handouts plus materials for a color wrap
