Season 7 Episode 1 - Turned Twill with Colour and Weave
It is so much fun to start the year with another overlay idea. This year is all about adding Colour and Weave sequences to units and blocks. We’ll start with Turned Twill for the 3rd year in a row…adding my favourite Dark/Light sequence from Season 3 E4, which was Dark/Light/Dark/Dark/Light. We’ll add it to units and then to blocks and make that cute little motif bigger and bigger and bigger. This should set your mind on fire.
I also demonstrate how to wind 2 warps…a light one and a dark one and then beam both warps simultaneously. This method comes in really handy when you have a lot of colour changes in a warp.
Things we will learn:
How to overlay C&W sequences from our C&W gamp S2E2 onto units and blocks to make these motifs as big as we want.
We use D/L and D/D/L/D/L in the composition.
How to bring other sequences into the treadling.
We can also play with all those other tie-ups from S5 E1 and S6 E2.
Twill blocks are amazing :)
How to warp with 2 warps, a dark warp and a light warp.
A discussion about whether we want to tie knots or warp with 2
One isn’t right, one isn’t wrong...they are just different ways to warp
and it is good to know.
