In this workshop we will be pushing the boundaries of traditional Huck Lace. For generations Huck Lace has been woven in cotton or linen with warp and weft threads of the same size and color. The thought behind this is to allow the warp floats and weft floats be the focus of the pattern. With four shafts, Huck has some limitations. When you add Color and Weave theory to this familiar threading a whole new world of patterning possibilities comes to life.

Students will thread their looms to a draft with instructions that will be sent to them prior to the class. The threading draft is arranged in a gamp format so students can compare familiar Huck with the new color and weave application, and weave dozens of patterns for future reference. A wide range of treadling possibilities will be assigned during class with a handout that will enable you
to continue your exploration at home after the class is finished.

Note: this is not a ‘Round Robin’ – you will be working on your own loom and weaving the samples at your own pace.
