Offered in two formats, a remote lecture series conducted entirely over Zoom or a hands-on workshop with participants gathered together with their sewing machines at CHG’s Room 1 at the Dunwoody Cultural Arts Center and Daryl on the ‘big screen’. The second format will offer opportunities to work hands-on with the techniques covered with workshop facilitators available to ‘walk’ Daryl around for consultation and feedback.

Deborah Silver will present – Multiple Structures using a Straight Threading
This will be a 3-Day In-Person Workshop
Deborah Silver has literally ‘written the book’ on Split Shed weaving, a technique which allows you to achieve curves and blend colors using continuous wefts on a 4-shaft loom with no special equipment. In this workshop, students will create multiple combinations of weave structures using only four shafts and a straight threading. Only tie-ups and treadling are changed between samples. Students will experiment with combinations of twills, summer and winter, double weave, Han damask, taqueté and more! Woven samples include continuous, complementary, and supplementary wefts, as well as wefts which combine to produce shading for pictorial weaving. Students will also learn to make a cartoon on cloth that will advance with the warp and will not wrinkle when beating.
