One Warp, Many Structures: An Exploration of Extended Parallel Threading
As Marian Stubenitsky has shown in Weaving with Echo and Iris, extended
parallel threadings offer endless possibilities. In this workshop,
designed for advanced beginners and beyond, you will begin with your
loom dressed in a two-color warp using an extended parallel threading.
(Drafts will be provided beforehand.) Working with a variety of tie-ups
and treadlings, you will weave a series of designs in Echo, Jin (also
known as Turned Taqueté) and Shadow Weave — and, if you’re game to cut
off and re-sley your warp, Rep and Double Weave. The takeaway is a
sampler of colorful patterns and a broader, deeper understanding of the
potential for extended parallel threadings and how to design them. For
4-shaft looms and more.
