Description:
Wedge weave is an eccentric weaving technique where the wefts are woven at an angle to the warp.  Learn  its unique characteristics, basic techniques, and design possibilities to create dynamic and graphic tapestries.  Create a sampler or small piece or rug by incorporating various wedge weave techniques and styles and move beyond the expected.

Some weaving experience recommended.
