|WOOLGATHERERS WEAVING INFORMATION|
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. Drafting techniques for independent design.|
|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.|
