I am so excited we are having Jason Collingwood here in August! He’ll be doing a 3 day workshop the 9,10, and 11th.
3 -end b l o c k w e a v e .
An exploration of three end block weaves, the same structure Jason uses to weave all his rugs.
Participants will start with simple two colour designs and move on to designing within the blocks and the introduction of a third colour.
Techniques such as clasped wefts and dovetailing will be looked at to further increase the design scope of this structure.
2 / 1 double faced twill will also be covered in this class.
Special emphasis will be placed on Shaft Switching, every one being able to adapt their looms in class to try out this exciting technique.
below is one of Jason’s many rugs. His website is: http://www.rugweaver.co.uk/
