Join us on on Saturday, February 7th, for a one hour program on Lacey Waves presented by Susan Wilson.
The Lacey Weave workshop will take place on Sunday & Monday, February 8-9, 2015 at the Berthoud Community Center. Lacey weaves have been a favorite of generations of handweavers. Weaver-controlled techniques, e.g. Brook's bouquet and leno, allow the weaver to place the lacey areas wherever desired in the cloth. Pictorial images and geometric shapes can be created at will. Lace is created "automatically" using the loom controlled lace structures, e.g. huck, Swedish lace, and Bronson lace. Students will create a sampler of a variety of weaver-controlled techniques and one 4-shaft or 8-shaft loom-controlled structure. Drafting principles for several loom-controlled structures, as well as techniques for creating lace on other threadings, will be covered.
Cost is $100 for guild members and there is no material fee.
