Betsy Szymanski will present ‘Weave Structures’
You’ve heard all of the names: crepe weave, halvdrall, diversified plain weave, piqué, taqueté, and lampas. But what do they mean? How do you make sense out of all of the different weave structures out there? It’s easier than you think. All loom-controlled weave structures fall into just 3 categories.
Come see a slide show of over 100 beautiful woven projects, and in the process, learn about the similarities and differences between weave structures. You’ll find lots of inspiration, and maybe a path to new explorations
