Designing Four-Colour Doubleweave
A hands-on laptop-based design workshop
1) You must be properly familiar with Fiberworks (either CW or Mac). It is not enough to download it the week before and plan to work through the basics!
2) You will need a laptop. (I have one or two I could lend but they will probably not have validated versions of Fiberworks so you would not be able to print or save).
Numbers: Restricted to 12 at Bonnie’s request
Venue: The Handweavers Studio, 140 Seven Sisters Road, London N7 7NS
Thursday 7 November
Turn the Tied
Bonnie presented a seminar on this topic (turning tied weaves) at CW Seminars in Washington, DC last year. She covered a lot of ground in it, and it’s certainly a topic that would benefit from having a whole day to explore the concepts, design methods, and considerations of when to turn and when not to turn.
Numbers: I will try to find a venue to accommodate everyone who lets me know within the week that they want to attend.
Venue: To be announced. If number are below 12 or thirteen we may hold it in my home, 10 minutes’ walk from Highgate tube. If numbers are greater, I will find a venue as central as possible in London.
Costs: Ballpark £50 per day. It may come down to £40 if we don’t have any venue charges, or it may go up to £55. I doubt it will go beyond that.
Anyone interested should contact me via email at email@example.com
