Dye Techniques for Weavers 

Painting for an Artisan Scarf

If you're a weaver looking for a new technique to take you to that next level, consider starting your own line of painted fashion scarves using an extremely easy method to paint your warps.

Here are a couple of photos from just some of my workshops

I am now offering a one-day weavers' workshop in Computer Design and Drafting, using Fiber Works PCW. I can supply a demo download for participants or directions to download from the web ahead of time, so that participants can come fully prepared. Take weaving to the next level by designing your own work and be even more proud of your weaving results.

Loom Maintenance, Repair and How to Make Your Loom Work for You"

Presentation

I've been in the side-business of restoring old looms for years and have encountered nearly every make and model, and shared my tips in Handwoven magazine articles. It's a shame to see a good loom sit idle for want of a tune-up or a new part. This is a program designed for weavers' guilds and groups. I also consult and give guidance if you want to buy or sell equipment and I usually know most of the market resources. 

Double Weave

Double Weave is the easiest thing to learn, but it's probably better to take a workshop for your first go at it. One warp and we go thru nine different techniques to play with. Double layers, double cloth, windows, laces, little stuffed pillows within the cloth....

Crackle Weave - Mysteries and Magic. This class is comprised of fundamentals of the crackle structure, drafting using computer enhanced draw-downs (and a solid intro to computer drafting) , and hands on weaving using a multitude of treadling combinations. You'll learn something of twills, summer&winter, overshot and lace in the process. Plan on two 6- hour days for this workshop.

I always offer one-on-one tutorials and can

design a course just for your individual interests.
