Exploring Krokbragd Weaving

Course Overview

Explore krokbragd, or “crooked path” weaving. This beautiful weft-faced, twill based weave structure has Scandinavian roots, and was historically used to create heavy, warming home textiles. In this session, weavers dive into this detailed process to explore color and pattern, and learn how to design krokbragd using graph paper, or digitally using excel or a weaving software. Weaving krokbragd can be slow, so the emphasis here is on process, resulting in either four small coaster samplers of different designs or a wall hanging sampler. Students should have experience weaving on a four harness loom and be able to dress the loom with minimal assistance. Note, this class will meet in person on campus, but will have a virtual meet up the week prior for introductory work.

North House is looking forward to hosting this course on campus in the safest way possible. As recommended by our HVAC consultants, we have increased air ventilation and installed an air filtration system. We perform extra cleaning of campus and are keeping class sizes small in our largest classrooms. Students must participate in a daily health screening and temperature check, agree to wear a mask at all times on campus, and to practice social distancing of 6 feet, as well as adhere to other safety protocols in some cases. See the full details of our COVID-19 protocols here.
