Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
Make your overshot runners or cushions more festive by scattering ‘frosted flakes’ over the fabric. This is accomplished by isolating parts of the design to create snowflake-like motifs. By following different treadling sequences, such as undulating twill, tromp-as-writ and as-drawn-in, each inlaid ‘snowflake’ will be as individual as the real thing… the woven version is certainly more permanent. If you don’t often use threads that glisten, this class is proof that a little sparkle can be a good thing!
Students will bring warped 4-shaft looms. The overshot threading draft will be supplied at least one month prior to the workshop (warp - 4/8 cotton in one or two colours; weft - 2/8 cotton). Please bring additional weft yarns in glittery threads. Two shuttles with bobbins and thread scissors are also needed.
This class is suitable for intermediate weavers.
