Intro to Double Weave and Project Class with Nancy Shiffrin

February 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Double Weave, or Double Cloth, can seem magical to a weaver who hasn’t yet tried it. It can be woven on as few as four shafts and is made up of two sets of warps and one or more sets of weft. It can be woven as two separate layers of cloth, one over the other. Alternatively, the two layers can be joined on one side to create a single layer of cloth twice as wide as the original, or joined on both sides to create a tube.
When adding more shafts or using pick up, more complicated designs can can be created. In this class we’ll be weaving a sampler with 5/2 Perle cotton which will be provided for you. Besides learning the basic techniques listed above we will learn how to weave the top layer in a lace weave so that the bottom layer peeks through. Finally we will plan and weave a pick up design which can be as simple or decorative as you like.
All students will be weaving with 5/2 cotton. There will be a $15 supply charge paid to the instructor.
Class dates are:
January 26, February 2, 9, 23 and March 2 & 9
All classes will be 12:30 – 3:30
Members Price $355
Non-Members Price $375
Depending on many complicating factors, proof of vaccination may be required.
