Things we will learn:

  • How to turn a draft
  • Turned Taquete is related to weft faced Summer and Winter
  • The sett for your warp yarn is typically increased because you are making a warp predominant fabric
  • sometimes warp shifting occurs and we will learn to deal with that
  • D/L combinations provide your blocks
  • you must shift the DL to LD wherever you want a block change just like log cabin
  • on 4 shafts it has 2 easy-to-treadle blocks
  • Turned Taquete is an awesome one-shuttle weave structure 🙂
  • you can repeat your treadling units as many times as you want
  • we can also weave the warp in plain weave (unbalanced), warp predominant Repp, or 2/2 Twill
  • we can overlay these ideas on old canvases
  • we can overlay ideas about division of space and repetitive sequence onto the structure.
