Workshop Description: Doubleweave V-Shaped Shawl on 4 Shafts
Learn how to design and weave a V-shaped shawl on a single warp, with no seams! The class will start with a review of double weave on 4 shafts, appropriate for all levels of weavers. The techniques will then be applied by demonstration to show participants how to use them to weave a V-shawl or scarf. Expect “Aha!” moments! The class will then turn to design and how the choice of warp color patterns changes the final product.
