Instructor: Laurie Autio

Workshop Description: The next time you need a batch of holiday gifts, or some interesting mini-production weaving, try playing with the tie-up. Long warps with constant threading and treadling are an efficient and accurate way to weave.  By learning to design in the tie-up you can create many strikingly different pieces from one threading and treadling.  In addition to creating new motifs you can add stripes where there were none, change or combine weave structures, effectively decrease the number of shafts and treadles (or blocks), and/or alter the symmetry. 

Suitable to intermediate to advanced weavers. Examples are given on eight or more shafts, though some techniques are applicable to fewer shafts. 


Supplies: Bring graph paper and pencil with eraser or computer with weaving program.

Materials/Handouts Fee: $3.00
