Revelations in Rep Weave
Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of rep weave in a four day workshop with celebrated weaver Kelly Marshall. This course will include presentations and discussion covering the unique characteristics of rep weave, color blending and designing, pattern block movement as well as demonstrating weaving technique and material selection. Each student will weave a table runner to take home. The course is for intermediate to experienced weavers, each participant will be expected to be able to warp the loom independently. Students can purchase a warp and weft from the instructor $65 or bring their own warp, wound according to instructions provided by the instructor, and weft. After registering, students will receive a packet of warping instructions for either a 4 or 8 shaft pattern, to create a 10” wide table runner using 5/2 pearl cotton.
