WEAVING THE PERFECT TOWEL with Liz Gipson
Towels are the weaver’s muse. They are the perfect platform to show off all kinds of colorwork, structural elements and style. Students will learn what makes a good towel, how to weave on a rigid heddle loom with fine threads to create a textile that has drape, absorbance, and pizazz. Students should have warped and woven a couple of projects.
Materials students should provide: A pre-warped rigid heddle loom
Yarncraft has occupied much of Liz Gipson's life. She is the author of the newly revised and updated Weaving Made Easy, and has four instructional videos on rigid-heddle weaving published by Interweave. Liz writes articles for many popular fiber-related magazines, website and blogs, and teaches workshops throughout the country. In 2013, she launched Yarnworker, a source for rigid-heddle know-how and inspiration. She has a new book on weaving for the home.
