    Weaving on a triangle loom is fun, creative, easy and quick. There is no elaborate planning and measuring process. Triloom weaving is an efficient way to use yarn, so you can use your stash yarn or more expensive designer, or hand-spun yarns. Triangle looms are great for weaving plaid patterns and elegant lace patterns. The process is simple to learn and is enjoyable for adults and children of any age. Continuous strand weaving has no separate warp and weft but uses one continuous strand of yarn. This instruction is a basic class on continuous strand weaving and can be used as an entry to more advance techniques such as twill, lace, double weaves, inlay, tartans, and other color sequences, and for the designer!

    Day 1: The Favorite Sketchbook

    There are sketchbooks and sketchbooks, but this particular lovely book has become my favorite and will be yours too! It opens totally flat, it can be made from easy to fine materials, and best of all, it features a textile cover and you made it! We'll be making a 6" x 6" sketchbook in class with hard covers and 120 pages of multi-media paper. Once you make this book in class, you'll know how to make larger and smaller version with whatever paper you want! You'll learn all the book making basics and then some…paper stuff, gluing, piercing, sewing, all the fabulous bits that go into making a well-made, useful and enjoyable sketchbook/journal. I will bring a tool kit for you to use and all the supplies including some wonderful pieces of fabrics to use on the covers, but you might want to keep your eye open for that special thrift store find, or check your drawers for your favorite saved textile treasures. Light to medium weight, woven cotton type fabrics work the best.

    Day 2: The Perfect Bound Journal

    The perfect binding (glued binding) is one we handle all the time in our daily lives as ordinary paperback books, yet when used in a handmade notebook it becomes extraordinary. We will make a “Perfect Little Notebook” using this quick and marvelous binding technique as well as tea staining the paper sheets (text block) for an antique look and feel, creating the cover from your favorite cotton or rayon fabric and making a closure from small buttons and ribbons.  Once we finish our small ( 5” x 3.75” ) notebook of 64 pages, information will be shared as how to create larger and different shapes for this binding at home.

    Level: All levels

    Materials fee: $55 for handouts, use of book binding kit, sketch paper, glues, waxed linen, extra fabrics, All supplies needed to make sketchbook

    Materials made from the bast fiber of the paper mulberry plant (broussonetia papyrifera) are known by many names: tapa, wauke, kozo, dak, saeh, aka, malaing, gul-toot, hiapo, kapa, dualang, washi, hanji, and many others. Originally from the Asian Pacific region, paper mulberry has been transported by humans and animals so that it now is present and continues to spread in each continent, except Antarctica. The plant has a voracious system of roots that can quickly overtake native species, degrade soil quality, and cause erosion. However, in parts of the world where the plant has a legacy of a culture of use, there is not a problem with it spreading because people recognize the value of it, and it is kept in ecological balance through use. Paper mulberry has been used for millennia as clothing, spiritual material, currency, rope, paper, scripts, sculpture, wall paper, bags, contemporary art, and more. In this hands-on, two-day workshop we will survey the diverse historic and contemporary uses of paper mulberry, how to identify the plant in the wild, responsible harvesting practices, and various processing methods. Starting with the raw plant, participants will learn how to process the bast fiber to achieve a variety of effects. Each participant will form a sheet of paper from pulp and a swath of bark cloth or lace to take home.

    Members of the Kudzu Cooperative and Local Cloth are excited to facilitate a workshop that explores the ancient processes of harvesting, cooking, retting, and rinsing kudzu vine fiber. This lustrous, dynamic fiber has been used for thousands of years in various parts of Asia to make rope, cloth, and paper. Kudzu is so abundant in our bioregion, and the Kudzu Collective is committed to promoting this culture of use. Join us in exploring the vast story kudzu has to tell us, and bring your ideas of how its fibers can be used for fiber art! Instructors from the Kudzu Cooperative, will guide workshop participants in hands-on kudzu vine processing throughout the morning. We will begin the day harvesting in a nearby urban kudzu patch, and then work together to rinse already retted fiber (retted means “rotted,” so prepare for a stink!). Wear clothes that you don't mind getting wet and a little messy. During lunchtime we will hear the story of kudzu, an intriguing tale of many layers, and introduce the group to the culinary and medicinal benefits of kudzu root starch, another valuable coproduct of this useful plant. Throughout the afternoon, we will then work with processed kudzu fibers to explore how the fiber responds to various manipulations. A small skein of pre-processed fiber will be provided for participants to experiment with spinning and weaving. Feel free to bring a small loom or other spinning and weaving equipment to experiment with. Additional pre-processed fibers will be available for purchase. Don't miss this unique workshop that encompasses ecology, sustainability, anthropology, and fiber art!

    The goal of this workshop is to learn a wide variety of techniques that facilitate preparing to weave, setting up for weaving, and the process of weaving flow from start to finish. This is not a workshop for total beginners. It is a workshop for those who have ever tangled a warp; have wondered how to smoothly wind warps and bobbins from multiple cones; want to know how to mix textures, colors, warp chains, yarn weights without tension issues; interested in working with multiple warp chains easily; could benefit from learning to cleanly split warp chains to use some threads now, some later; might like to try using a warping paddle and warping mill, who want some great techniques for designing at the reed; want to learn how to efficiently tie onto an existing warp to avoid sleying/threading for every project; interested in why some chains won't unchain and how to make the perfect untwisted chain; already know how to setup from back to front but want to learn why/when setting up front to back for a particular project is an overwhelmingly better choice; already know how to setup front to back but want to learn to do it more effortlessly. Kathrin will demo these techniques and invite class members to explore them with hands-on assistance. There will be time for Q&A as we address specific topics that relate to your weaving process.

    Level: Intermediate

    Materials Fee:  $5 for Demo loom, Demo warps, Warping paddle and warping mill, Multiple cones of yarn for demoing warp and bobbin winding, Hand tools including variety of shuttles, electric bobbin winder, and small tools

    The goal for this dyeing workshop is to learn the basics for dyeing full rich color in cellulose yarn (cotton, rayon, linen, etc.), dyeing safely, traditional as well as non-traditional application of dyes, and processes needed to set the dyes for color fastness. Students will learn fundamentals for dye application to produce one of a kind, technically sound and color-fast hand-dyed cotton yarn and fabric. Students will learn techniques for space-dyeing skeins and warps, resist dyeing yarn, and how to set up a basic dye kitchen. And, beyond that, to learn to dye with personal fearlessness and intention. We will discuss and explore a wide variety of ways to layout warps to be dyed - each layout giving a different result for what will turn into woven fabric. This is not a “recipe” class. Using 7 hues of Fiber Reactive MX dyes students will begin to develop insight into the essence of color that allows them to blend, shade and produce a full spectrum of color.

    Level: Beginner

    Materials Fee:  $30 for pre-wound, scoured warps and skeins for those of you who want to supplement your supply. Please order through my webshop at least 2 weeks before the workshop. Since I am driving, I can bring them along with me.

    Staring at your yarn stash deciding what weaving project shall be next, your eyes land on that yarn you bought at a fiber fair in 2012. You loved it then, and you love it now, but it remains on the shelf because you are just not sure how to use it. Or you still have a small quantity of a precious and expensive yarn, but don’t know how to combine it with other yarns so that it still plays the starring role in the design. Or maybe your yarn stash has simply reached critical mass, and you need to use it up so you can order more. This one-day off-loom workshop will give you suggestions for using the yarn you have to weave the cloth you want. Bring a few of your “challenge” yarns with you, and leave with one or more project ideas.

    We will:

    -Evaluate the qualities and properties of the yarns you’ve brought.
    -Share ideas about the best project for them with other participants.
    -Learn ways to combine your stash yarns with other yarns.
    -Get hands-on practice with color-mixing exercises, fiber identification & research and drafting with graph paper or computer software.

    Supplies to bring: A few yarns from your stash you are not sure how to use, pencil, pen, a few colored pencils or markers, graph paper, small calculator, scissors, scotch tape, color wheel
