Margaret’s early introduction to computers while she was teaching spinning, dyeing, and weaving, led her to focus on weave structure and digital design. She has completed college studies in graphic design with concentrations in web and digital design, and is one of few with college credit in weave design using Adobe® Photoshop®.
Margaret is the author of: 4-8 . . . Weave!; Fit 2 Be Tied – a digital approach; Designing 4 the Future; and 2 Be Tied or Not 2 Be Tied – book 1 not tied.
Parallel Paradox – The Corris Effect
It takes a village, or at least a bunch of weavers brainstorming, to make one halt, take a right turn, and look at drafts and structures in a whole new light.
Just when you think you have a good handle on formulating structures, something comes up to show you how wrong you can be!
In two separate, but ultimately related incidents, we discovered that it isn’t always the threading, the tie up and treadling, or the liftplan, that determine structure, but the placement of a design line can change it all.
The concept is fresh, explaining what is happening isn’t easy either, but watch as we change structures with very simple commands.
From double weave to Jin (turned taqueté) with different twills and basket weave; from Jin variations to summer & winter variations. It’s magic!
And we are continuing to explore . . .
