Description
Confused about Countermarch versus Counterbalance? Don't know warp from weft? Can't make heads or tails of that weaving draft or know if you have enough yarn to complete that project? This class is for you! We'll review how to weave period drafts, how to read them in modern weaving parlance and how to interpret the key weaving information given with archeologically preserved textiles. This class is for anyone who wants to understand this textile language.
