Bold line, zigzag stripes and scalloped selvedges are striking characteristics of wedge weave.  Instead of weaving perpendicular to the warp, wedge weave is an eccentric weaving technique where the wefts are woven at an angle.  Learn the techniques and design possibilities to create dynamic tapestries. Create a sampler or small piece trying various approaches to wedge weave techniques and styles.

Pursue variations of eccentric weaves, techniques for working with slits, and approaches for combining tapestry and wedge weave.

Students will warp a floor or frame loom and work and learn various approaches to the technique.   A PowerPoint presentation on the history and design of Navajo wedge weave and contemporary adaptations will be included.

A weaver for over 40 years, Deborah Corsini exhibits her work internationally. Her work is in public and private collections.  She is the former curator at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles and continues to be an advocate for all forms of contemporary textiles.
