Broken, point, extended point, M & W, advancing and herringbone all are examples of an almost endless variety of twill weaving patterns possible on four shafts. The best way to learn about these patterns is by weaving a gamp or sample blanket. Start with a warp divided into sections of different twill threadings. Apply a 2/2, 1/3 or 3/1 twill tie-up and then treadle the patterns in the order threaded. The resulting gamp illustrates how each threading looks when woven with itself, PLUS many more examples of how they look woven with each other. This is the second of a series of three classes guiding participants through development and weaving of a twill gamp, using lecture, hands-on demos and, if desired, at-home practice. This class focuses on weaving the twill gamp, varying tie-up and treadling for multiple patterns.

Level: Intermediate

Materials fee: $5 for Handout with drafts, warped demo loom and all materials and tools used in class.
