DVD: Supplementary Warp Patterning - Inkle Loom Techniques

Supplementary Warp Patterning: Inkle Loom Techniques, with Jacquetta Nisbet.

This course shows you how to weave a magnificent warp-faced pattern structure from ancient Peru, while learning optimum inkle loom techniques. You will learn about choices in looms and tools, yarn preparation, heddle making and setting up the loom, color principles, and how to read and design pattern drafts. The first of two projects is a narrow belt or bag strap introducing you to pattern picking on a small scale. The second textile, the bag body, is wider and more complex in design and color. It can be woven as a 7" wide textile, or as two 3 1/2" wide strips, depending on the width of your inkle loom. Finishing techniques include bag construction and fringe making - (or you can proceed to the video/DVD "Tubular Woven Finishes-Backstrap Loom Techniques" to learn how to make decorative ribetes and bands). An overview of Andean textiles, and works by the author, provide an idea of the range and diversity of this intriguing weave. Prerequisites: None. Materials needed: You will need a sturdy inkle loom, 6" or 10" beater or belt shuttle, about 12 colors of hard twist worsted wool yarn, (about 1 to 3 pounds, depending on project choices), and 2 slim shed sticks. A detailed explanation and further yarn and tool details are included on the written insert along with pattern graphs. 87 minutes
