Explore finger-manipulated techniques including Danish medallions, Brooks bouquet, Spanish lace, rya, leno and clasped weft. Each of these techniques has the potential for infinite creativity depending on variables of yarn choice, scale, and position. You will weave a sampler to learn the basic techniques and to whet your appetite for continued exploration. By using two colors in the warp this project becomes not only a sampler of these techniques, but of color interaction for each structure. These finger-manipulated techniques may also be used on traditional table and floor loom weaving, adding to any weaver’s repertoire.
Experience: You must know basic operation of the RH loom and be able to weave plain weave.
