    4-End Block Weave for Rugs with Jason Collingwood

    This 3-day workshop is an exploration of 4-end block weave, which is an excellent structure for rugs and one that produces a very strong, clean look.  Starting with the basics, emphasis will be put on increasing design possibilities by employing various techniques such as ‘constant color’, ‘constant lift’ and ‘clasped wefts’.  Introducing plain weave into the structure will allow you to explore the popular weave known as summer and winter.  Shaft switching will be explained in relation to this structure and possible ways of adapting your loom to explore this exciting technique will be covered.  In addition, the class will include instruction on how to set up your loom correctly for rug weaving.  Twining at the beginning and end of the rug, darning in of loose ends, use of the temple and many other invaluable tips for successful rug weaving will be discussed.  The class concludes with a look at rug finishes; a few of the many finishes will be demonstrated.

    I took his blockweaving class several years ago. His teaching is clear and methodical. Nice man. You will learn to weave a block weave rug with nice finishes. I'll take it again just to gel what I learned the first time.
