This workshop will teach the basics of split-shed weaving using a variation of the tied beiderwand pattern. This type of weaving uses four shafts, five treadles, and three weft yarns that all travel from selvedge to selvedge. Students will learn how to produce shading with yarn in order to create dimensional-looking imagery. They will also learn how to make and use a cartoon on cloth that will advance with the warp and will not crinkle when beating.

Equipment: Pre-warped 4 harness loom, minimum 9" wide. Table or floor looms are good, floor looms
