Weaving Between the Lines with Juniper Wexler

Weaving Between the Lines with Juniper Wexler

Flowers, waves, stars, gardens: words that colorfully describe the shapes possible with 4-shaft overshot. This class aims to break these forms out of their strict grid, instead activating overshot's potential as a malleable design system. We will develop a no-fear understanding of floatwork drafts, so that we can fluidly transform motifs with modifications in threading and treadling. Each student will design and weave an original sample, and by incorporating inlay and clasped weft we will further expand our creative expression "between the lines" of a plain weave grid. We will also briefly cover computer drafting for those interested.
