Weave Structure: Intro to Tied Weaves
Do terms like "single two tie" or "single three tie" bewilder you? Are you curious about what makes a tied weave a tied weave? For weavers interested in understanding terms like "summer and winter" and how it relates to taqueté or exploring Quigley and Bergman tied weaves, then this class is for you! All of this establishes a foundation for understanding the double two tie threading and its incredible versatility.
Instructor Bio: Robyn Spady was introduced to handweaving as a baby with her handwoven baby blanket woven by her great-grandmother. Inspired by her blankie, she learned to weave at a young age and has been weaving for over 50 years. She completed HGA's Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving (COE-W) in 2004 with the specialized study Loom-controlled Stitched Double Cloth. Robyn is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads and loves coming up with new ideas to create fabric and transform it into something new and exciting. She is committed to turning the weaving world on to double-faced fabrics, four-shaft weaves, uncommon and advanced weave structures, and passementerie techniques. Robyn is also the founder and editor of Heddlecraft® magazine.
