Instructor: Anne Graham
Workshop Description: Shadow Weave
Shadow weave, a structure derived from plain weave, can be used to make fabrics suitable for fashion and home furnishings. Two colors alternate in the warp and weft to produce color and weave effects with a great number of patterning possibilities. Mary Meigs Atwater and Marion Powell developed their own notations for shadow weave; learn how to read their drafts and compare the advantages that each system offers. Convert your favorite designs to shadow weave. Note: students should be able to read a weaving draft.
