It’s October, and you know what that means! It’s time to post JST’s schedule for 2014.
Our 2013 workshops are coming to a close and it has been quite the year. So many workshops, so much success and so many people on the wait lists. Keeping those wait lists in mind I have decided to do three each of our foundation series workshops: Colour & Design, Pushing the Boundaries of Plainweave and Twills on Four. With two workshops on Units, Blocks and Profiles. This has filled up the whole year! In 2015 we will be offering a few new workshops and more multi-shaft workshops.
If you have never been to a workshop at JST we encourage you to start with Colour and Design. This foundation workshop gives you the confidence and skills to design your own woven cloth. Many long time weavers have taken this workshop and commented that they wished they had had this course years earlier in their careers. It is the perfect workshop for newer weavers. If you have difficulty making decisions about sett, colour or how to use it in your weaving this course is for you. Colour and Design is being offered January 13-17th, March 3-7th and April 7-11th.
Pushing the Boundaries of Plainweave aka Awesome Weave will blow your mind. If you thought that plain weave was plain, you must take this course. You will be delighted to find out the immense diversity of this humble weave structure. This workshop also teaches weavers how to adapt their technique to different situations, how to weave linen with ease, how to perfect the selvedge. It could also be called “Exploration of Sett” as we travels the realms of balanced cloth, warp faced cloth and weft cloth and the many points in between. Pushing the Boundaries of Plain Weave is being offered June 30th-July 4th, July 28th- August 1st and August 18th-22nd.
