April 5th Meeting and Program

Lucienne Coifman

Journey to Nontraditional Rep Weave

Lucienne Coifman is a master fiber artist/designer and author of REP, RIPS, REPS Weave ,who specializes in rep weave projects for the table, floor, walls, and in forming 3-dimensional objects.

Traditional Rep Weave consists of two color layers and two different wefts.  For a while Lucienne has been exploring Nontraditional Rep Weave patterns making modifications to Classic Rep, exploring how to bend the rules concerning the thin weft and still keep the characteristics of Rep Weave.  The pandemic gave her the time and opportunity to explore many new variations, several of which resulted in interesting outcomes both on the front and the underside.  Most of the weaving was done in preparation of a second book:  REP WEAVE and BEYOND

In her program, she will be sharing her journey – perhaps including some glimpses into that new book!
