February 6-8  Extreme Warp Make Over 

Hate to warp? Want more versatility from a single warp? Then this workshop is for you! In this workshop, participants will warp their loom with their choice of three four shaft threadings and perform an extreme makeover and weave it many different ways….from twill, lace, and overshot to swivel, corduroy, deflected weft, and double-faced. At the same time participants are presented with basics of different structures and how to adapt a single threading to weave a number of different weaves, including concepts such as star vs. rose fashion, weaving on opposites, and echo treadling.
