Plain Weave - An Introduction to Rug Weaving with Jason Collingwood
An ideal course for those wishing to try out rug weaving for the first time, though with enough 'tricks' to also suit the more experienced weaver.
Students will learn how to make a strong serviceable rug (plain weave being an excellent structure for rugs). Initially weaving stripes and spots using two colors, learning how to overcome the selvage problems inherent in each different design.
Clasped wefts, crossed wefts and compensated inlay will be covered, all these new techniques giving the weaver more freedom with design. Dates: Saturday - Monday, June 15-17 Time: 10am - 5pm Materials Required:
Please bring your loom warped to the first class. Instructions about materials and warping can be found here.
