Instructor: Penny Lacroix
Workshop Description: 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.

Students should bring colored pencils, markers or crayons.
