Master Rug Weaver Jason Collingwood will be teaching a 3-day workshop in Walnut Creek on March 22- 24, 2017, through the Center for Community Arts. The hours are 9 am to 4 pm each day. You may register online at Jason Collingwood Workshop Registration or by calling (925) 943-5846.
The threading is 2/2 Twill. The course will include straight twill, broken twill and twill on opposites. Within the above three structures, many two and three color sequences will be explored, each giving crossed wefts (parallel and contrary motion); and clasped wefts will be applied to 2/2 twill, further increasing the design possibilities. Pick-up and 3/1 double faced twill will also be explored. This class will also include some work with shaft switching, where students will learn how to adapt their own looms. Materials list online at www.communityarts.org.
The workshop is for ages 18 years and over, and the fee is $226 (plus a $3 processing fee). The course number is 33984. If you have any questions about the details, please contact Reba.
