Double-faced Weaves Lecture with Robyn Spady

Double-faced fabrics have a different appearance on both sides.  There are numerous ways to create double-faced fabrics and many of these methods require only four shafts or less!

October 9 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

AKA There are Two Sides to Every Cloth

All cloth has two sides, so why not make them as distinct and interesting as possible, even completely different?  On as few as four shafts, it’s possible to weave versatile fabric that possesses completely different appearances to each side.  Participants will be presented with numerous ways to achieve cloth with two different sides.  Samples will include fabric that is double-faced, reversible, self-lined, reinforced delicate weaves, and/or has dimensional effects.

Cost:  $10 CVFG Members, $15 Non-members.

Let the loom do all the work! Beautiful lace effects can be achieved by creating half heddles or doups and with the press of a treadle, or lift of a lever, threads magically cross themselves in the warp.

Skill Level:  All level weavers welcome.

Supplies:  A PDF handout will be available for participants with the basics of the techniques, edited down from the full article written for Heddlecraft which was over 31 pages.
