Designing Polychrome Taqueté In Weavepoint

303 Monday AM

Anyone who has seen Lillian Whipples amazing multi-color kimonos, butterflies and other miniature images and wondered if they too might venture into the world of polychrome taqueté might want to attend this seminar to learn something about the technique and some WeavePoint tools that can make the design process, if not easy, at least possible.

This is appropriate for Intermediate to advanced weavers. A basic familiarity with weaving software is desirable but not required. This is especially suitable for multi-shaft, dobby or electronic dobby weavers.

Materials fee: An optional fee of $10 for a USB stick with examples of polychrome taqueté drafts in wif format on a single 2-tie and double 2-tie threading.

Supplies:  None
