Turned or Block Twills, Their Many Possible Faces
March 29 and April 26 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, Hagerstown, MD
Instructor – Barbara Diefenderfer
Students will weave a reference sampler while exploring the many creative possibilities of turned twills and discover the influence of color harmonies in the warp. This workshop will change the use of color in any weaver’s work. Each student will come to class with an 8-shaft loom threaded and ready to take advantage of seeing possible twill variations and other structures available while using the turned twill threading. Accommodations can be made for students using a 4-shaft loom. This is the perfect class for the color timid weaver and also for one who feels a need to find new creative adventures in weaving. Warping instructions will be conveyed to each participant as soon as their class registration is complete. Table looms as well as floor looms will work well for this class.
Registration should be made at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. Each participant will pay $25.00 to the museum in advance of the class and be prepared to pay the instructor $10.00 for a workbook and class fee.
