NEW! 321. Twill Patterns & Plaid

Twills are one of the most versatile weaves to explore,
with lovely patterns, soft draping fabrics or dense rugs and
dynamic color play. Twills are the basic weave structure for
denim jeans, traditional overshot and have patterns with the
names “rosepath”, “crackle” and “shadow weave.” Students
will learn a bit of weaving history, how to read drafts/recipes
and create their own, explore a variety of twills and plaid,
choose yarns that are best for this project, set up a floor
loom and create fabric. Samples are encouraged. Students
can weave on their projects outside of class time in the
studio.
