In her one day workshop MX506 ‘Spice it Up’ will be offered on Friday. For this class you will need to have a pre warped loom, warped for 8 inch tabby weave with a solid or closely blended color (1 and 1/2 yard warp length). Cameron will supply the weft yarns. This sounds like an interesting class. Cameron will show you how to add accent yarns to a warp using a tie-in board, yarn twisting and wrapping techniques and yarn blending. Again weft yarns will be provided for accent colors and textures. The only requirement is you must be able to read a draft. Does that sound more interesting? It does to me. Visit her color play workshop online, to see a sample or her classes or listen to an interview with her on weavecast.com.
Cameron’s Saturday workshop MX 513 ‘Ready Sett, Go’ will teach you to determine sett simply and accurately using the Ashenhurst Formula. This is a mathematical calculation used by the textile industry to account for fiber, yarn type, weave and end use. She will be focusing on the simple calculations that are of immediate use to the hand weaver. You will learn to design your own fabric. For this class she suggests a calculator with a square root button, thank goodness for that!
Come experience a class with Cameron at Midwest Weavers 2011 conference Northern Wefts at Finlandia College in Hancock Michigan June 20-25.
