    October 4-6, 2014 - Elisabeth Hill

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 possible on a single threading by changing our tie-up, 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.

Ability Level: Able to warp a loom, change tie-up and follow a draft

Supplies, Equipment, Preparation Student Must Supply: An 8 or 12 shaft loom (this can be a table loom), 2 shuttles, 4 bobbins, notebook/pen, scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape. Lisa will send warps with full instructions, but the students must have their looms well warped and ready to weave at the beginning of class.
Supplies, Equipment Teacher Will Provide: A 5-yard warp for each student with a detailed draft and set of instructions for warping, coordinating weft material and detailed handouts. She will also bring a digital projector and many woven samples.
Workshop fee is $150. To register one needs to send a $50 deposit along with the following information: name, mailing address, e-mail address, whether your loom will be a floor or table loom and whether it is 8 or 12 harness. Send the deposit and information to Betty Mitchell, 79 Clay Hill Road, Hartland, VT 05048. If we do not have enough people signed up by July 7th we will open up to other guilds.

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. 2013.”
