Mystery Weave, Deflected Double Weave, Cell Weave
– it has as many names as it does possibilities. In this
workshop we explore the dramatic possibilities of deflected
double weave. We will experiment with the myriad variations

treadling and weft colors to create a mini sampler. Finally
we will choose a tie-up/treadling/colorway from our sampler
to weave a scarf.

Elisabeth Hill from Conway, Massachusetts. Lisa
shares this about herself: “I am a hand-weaver; mother of
three children, two cats, two dogs, and three (perhaps a few
more) looms. I have been weaving since 1995, and I received
my Master Weaver certificate from Hill Institute in
Florence, MA in 2012. I am currently Program Chair for
Weavers of Western Massachusetts and have had the
opportunity to give programs in Deflected Double Weave to
several guilds and at Convergence 2012 and at N.E.W.S.
