Jason is giving a workshop March 26-29 on 4-end Blockweave Structures.
FREE TALK SAT MARCH 26th at PTArts GUILD MEETING 11am – noon
4-end blockweave (taquete), is an extremely versatile structure for rug weaving. Offering many of the design possibilities that are achievable in 3-end blockweave, it is none the less visually very different.
The threading allows for plain weave and this means we can explore summer and winter in this class, opening up a whole new range of design options.
