April -Weaving with Supplemental Warps

April 12 and 13 we had a workshop with Deb Essen on Weaving with Supplemental Warps without a second back beam. Spindles & Flyers Guild in Berkeley helped arrange the workshop, which was organized with two other guilds, Del Oro Spinners and Weavers and Carmel Crafts Guild, both holding workshops after ours. See photos below of Deb’s weaving and our “show and tell” at the conclusion of the workshop.

Our instructor Deb’s samples, including a variety of weaves possible with supplemental warps:

For those unable to attend the workshop but are interested in this technique, Deb has a video course available through download:

An updated version of her book, Easy Weaving with Supplemental Warps, is also available through Amazon or other sources, such as the Eugene Textile Center.
