Drawdowns for 'One Warp, Many Structures: An Exploration of Extended Parallel Threading'


 Falling Stars as Echo Weave
Falling Stars as Turned Taquete

This is a compilation of 50 WIF files, all of them structures that I designed for the "One Warp, Many Structures" workshop I taught at Convergence 2018 in Reno, NV. There are 9 different threadings in all: 3 for 4-shaft looms, 3 for 8-shaft looms, and 3 for 12-shaft looms. Each threading has WIF files for weaving as Echo, Turned Taquete, Rep Weave, Shadow Weave, and Double Weave. The aim of the workshop is to learn how to weave all of these structures on one threading, simply by changing the tie up and treadling and weft yarns -- and sometimes re-sleying. This body of work aims to demonstrate the creative potential of extended parallel threadings, providing you with designs you can explore for a long time to come.

Handout for 'Paint Two, Beam One: Dyeing Two Warps and Beaming Them Together as One' Workshop





This 18-page handout gives you guidelines and inspiration on how to paint two warps in different but complementary color palettes and then combine them as one warp on your loom. You'll learn what structures lend themselves to this technique, which helps you maximize the color impact of your weaving. For those who love color and want to move out of their comfort zone, this is a great way to begin. This is the handout for workshops I have taught at MAFA and at a variety of weaving guilds.
