Online Guild Kit s03e01 – Denting

C$47.80

In this first sample from Season 3, we use our reed to create a wonderful lacy looking fabric in plain weave.

In the video, I use 16/2 cotton for the weft on one scarf and 30/2 silk on the second one. This certainly adds another layer of luxuriousness.

Things we will learn:

      • To weave with finer threads.
      • Dented fabrics need to have a firm sett… they are not woven at an open sett. Our reed and our beat create the open space.
      • We open our minds to adapting our weaving technique, ie throwing two picks to create resistance, then tap, tap, tap.
      • We learn to control our beater.
      • How to really visualize negative space.
      • How to bring gradation work over from Colour and Design and overlay it onto a new idea.
      • That we can mix cotton and silk.

The kit includes the following 16/2 Cottons:

        • Black
        • Charcoal
        • Dark Grey
        • Light Grey

Jane uses the following 30/2 silks in the final piece, which may be purchased using the links below.

      • Black Magic
      • Salt Spring Sky
