Feeling hemmed in by the ho hum of parallels and perpendiculars? Join me in an adventure out of the straight and narrow! In an on-loom, round-robin format, we will weave multiple samples I structures that allow the warp and weft to shift and move, creating a dizzying array of curves, undulations, and textures. We will discuss techniques and tips for weaving these structures, do drafting exercises, and examine many fabric samples.
