Weaving usually involves threads running at right angles, making stripes, rectangles, and squares a common part of our fabrics’ designs. This lecture will help open the mind to other possibilities. It’s designed to inspire weavers to try new structures and methods that will help them produce other visuals. Through slides, drafts, and tangible examples, the instructor will provide an overview of a variety of techniques. Most techniques are loom-controlled, but some involve hand manipulation, dyeing, or creative use of sewing after fabrics are off the loom. Weavers can then explore those of interest on their own. Many examples can be done on either four or eight shafts. The handout gives students pointers for further research as well as some drafts
