SCHG Presents in May
Cutting Loose With Tied Weaves
May 13, 14 & 15, 2017
With Robyn Spady
Weaving has always been a part of Robyn’s life. It started with her baby blanket handwoven by her great-grandmother. While growing up, it helped instill in Robyn a sense of creativity and confidence at a time when her self-esteem was developing. Robyn is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads and loves coming up with new ideas to create fabric and transform it into something that has never existed before. Robyn is also founder and editor of Heddlecraft.
MORNING PRESENTATION: TIED WEAVES
WORKSHOP: CUTTING LOOSE WITH TIED WEAVES
Tied weaves create patterned fabric with floats of limited length. It’s also an extremely versatile weave capable of amazing results. One of the most overlooked and minimized features of designing and drafting tied weaves and developing new patterns is the tie-up. One threading can provide a multitude of different treadling options – from singles and pairs to Dukagang and taquete. Why? Because of the ability to make subtle-to-major changes in the tie-up, treadling sequence, and wefts. Participants will learn the fundamentals of tied weaves and explore a number of variations.
