Season 6 Episode 1 - Intro to Units Blocks and Profiles
All weave structures come with their own set of rules and characteristics. As weavers/designers, it is our job to understand those rules and identify their characteristics while we learn to bring our ideas into our own unique cloth. In Season 6 you’ll be designing your own projects from profiles as we explore these 3 little words, Units, Blocks and Profiles.
