WeavePoint for Echo & Iris by Jannie Taylor
WeavePoint for Echo & Iris is one of the AVL series: Workshops in Handweaving. These workshops are intended for the multi-shaft weaver who wants to enhance their understanding of a particular area of handweaving. As in all of the AVL classes, the emphasis is on collaborative learning and hands-on experience in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere.
In WeavePoint for Echo & Iris, we will learn how to use the tools found in WeavePoint to design weaving drafts based on some of the design concepts found in Marian Stubenitsky’s amazing book Weaving with Echo & Iris. Including, echo threadings, network designs, turned Samitum and Taqueté, use of color, multi-structure liftplans and much more. How to use the tools found in WeavePoint to assist in the design process will be emphasized.
All materials and equipment will be provided including a comprehensive workbook and a variety of Echo & Iris style drafts on a CD. Access to a computer running WeavePoint will be available, but students are encouraged to bring their own laptop that can run Windows based programs if possible.
Skill Level: Intermediate -- some software experience is desirable but not required. Class is limited to eight students.
