Learn to weave with Jane Stafford
School of Weaving
Pushing the Boundaries of Plain Weave - Season 3
We take an in-depth look at Plain Weave. We get really familiar with our reed: exploring denting; cramming and denting; weft-faced; warp-faced; double weave; collapse weave and supplementary warp. All of these ideas are laid down on top of what we learned in Season 2.
Twills– Season 4
Season 4 we dive into the world of twill structure and overlay it with everything we learned in Colour & Design and Pushing the Boundaries of PW. We explore threadings, tie-ups, treadlings, colour and weave, big threadings, little threadings, Point Twill, Twill and Basket Weave, Shadow Weave, Weft Faced Twills and end up harnessing the power of 4 shaft looms in relation to the twill weave structure.
Seasons 5 - Laces and Season 6 - Units, Blocks & Profiles
Season 5 we tackle Laces with Canvas Weave, Huck, Huck with Colour and Weave effects, Bronson Spot, Atwater Bronson Lace, Blended Lace and how we can get Lace and Twills all in one piece. But we first start the season with Turned Twill, one of Jane’s favourite weave structures.
Season 6 we have another amazing season, laying a solid foundation based on the words - Units, Blocks and Profiles. We continue with the explorations we started with Season 5 and add much more. Graphic design will lead the way for structure and colour to live on. Our profiles will define our graphics and we'll learn how to interpret them in many different weave structures.
