Adjusting Published Patterns and Moving Beyond: Designing For Weaving

$80.00

Published patterns can be a great way to get ideas, inspiration, and information for woven projects. They can be an important tool for when you are starting out and predictability is important. In this Beginner to Advanced Beginner class, we will use the published pattern as a jumping off point to learn more about designing in weaving. We will talk about all the information we can gain from looking at patterns including yarn choices, sett, and structure. We will jump off from there, learning how to figure out warp length and sett, read drafts, different methods to help with color selection, choosing and purchasing yarns, and figuring out how to take an idea and fit it into the ideal number of threads for your project. We'll review drafting books, what different symbols mean, and how to adjust drafts to the size of your fabric and your ideal number of threads. The class will cover how to do your own drawdown by hand, and the instructor will demonstrate computer design software. Also covered will be different categories of fabric structures, and what a block is and how to use it in design. Feel free to bring patterns and ideas for how you would like to change those patterns, plus ideas for your own original projects.
