WARPING A LOOM SIMPLE TEMPLE DRAWLOOM/JACQUARD CLASSES/LECTURES LIBRARY

This is a new page under construction. Since creating the page for the simple temple plans, I have added instructional material about weaving topics, including warping a loom, how a drawloom is set up and functions, and experiences working on the TC-1.

As time passes, there will be a set of topics that supplement the basic classes that I teach.

Everyone has a focal point - mine is basic instruction in three areas -

1. Setting up the loom and use of weaving tools. This includes consideration of loom type and model as to how it relates to the cloth produced. 2  
2. Drafting techniques for independent design. 4  
3. Study of materials and their properties - as they relate to weaving. This includes fiber properties, spinning techniques and how they affect finished weavings, yarn numbering systems and classifications, sett determination, finishing and care of fabrics. 3
