The Sacramento Weavers and Spinners Guild has a few spaces left in an October workshop and has invited members outside the Sacramento guild to participate.
October 23 & 24, 2021: “Where the Shuttle Meets the Shed: Deflected Double Weaver Workshop,” with Natalie Drummond. $75
Saturday, 9-4: Weave deflected double weave samples on your pre-warped 8-shaft loom using various fibers and setts. Explore selvedge methods “where the shuttle meets the shed” for beautiful finishing. Discuss various finishing methods with and without agitation. Cut samples off loom and hand wash samples prior to Day 2.
Sunday, 10-4: Discuss and compare hand washed samples, movement/deflection v. differential shrinkage. Explore a simple treadle or tie-up change to weave your own scarf with the remainder of your warp (or sample).
Materials: 8-shaft loom, yarns on the material list (Zephyr, Tencel or bamboo), SOAK for washing samples, and notebook/pen/pencil for draft and samples. Each person will provide their own materials, although Natalie sometimes sells workshop warps dyed by Kathrin Weber.
There will be a Zoom question and answer session one month before the workshop and after participants receive two drafts and a materials list, via email.
To sign up, email Langdon (firstname.lastname@example.org). This workshop is limited to 10 participants. A waiting list will be kept if needed.
