Plain Weave Course with Jason Collingwood

August 10 @ 10:00 am - August 12 @ 4:00 pm
Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre 139 Water Street
ST. Andrews, New Brunswick E5B 1A7 Canada
+ Google Map
$550

This is an ideal course for those wishing to try out rug weaving for the first time, though with enough ‘tricks’ to also suit the more experienced weaver. Students will learn how to make a strong serviceable rug (plain weave being an excellent structure for rugs). Initially students will weave stripes and spots using two colours, learning how to overcome the selvage problems inherent in each different design. Clasped wefts, crossed wefts and compensated inlay will be covered, all these new techniques giving the weaver more freedom with design.
