Join us for a hands-on program on triaxial weaving.
Triaxial weaving is one of the oldest forms of weaving. Normally weaving has two elements; a warp and a weft. The main characteristic of triaxial weaving is that it has three elements; one warp and two wefts. It might look confusing in the beginning, but once you understand the concept it gets easier. There are many patterns you can weave, for instance tumbling blocks, stacked spots, pinwheel, star etc. We will be weaving the tumbling blocks.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending so we now how many supplies to prepare.more
