This is the first topical workshop at The Jacquard Center. Students will work together to warp the TC2 from start to finish for 2 warp beams. The first 4-5 days will focus on methods and processes and practices for winding, beaming, and tying on. The goal is to give students the opportunity to practice this very important and satisfying piece of the work. The remaining days will be spent working with the 2 warps using a variety of constructions. For example: double weave, or taquete and lampas.

About the Workshop:
This workshop is designed to address the questions, and issues that arise while warping a longer, finer warp. Rather than rushing through this very important part of the weaving process and dealing with the consequences - we will examine the steps and tools and methods in order to find the most suitable approach. This workshops is suitable for all levels. Once the loom is warped, I'll teach with Photoshop to develop loom files for double weave and other constructions that utilize multiple warps on the TC2. Training is flexible and can conform to the experience and interests of the participants. Class size is limited to 4-5 to allow participants maximum loom time. Loom access is available 24 hrs at The Jacquard Center.
Content for the weaving part of the course can include:
Focus on specific weaves structures or methods for creating compelling, intriguing outcomes.
Help with a particular project.
Arrangements for course content can be made when you register so the necessary curricular documents can be prepared. If there is no preference, I have a curriculum prepared that begins with a general introduction.
All workshops include handouts and relevant photoshop demo files. Every workshop will include discussions about warp densities, loom set up, winding, warping, weaving, and finishing where applicable.
Students must bring a laptop with Photoshop installed. The Jacquard Center will have some weft materials and a variety of shuttles and necessary tools in the studio. Other materials should be supplied by the students if desired.
