Incredibly versatile, parallel threadings can be used to weave a variety of structures including shadow weave, four color doubleweave, echo weave twills, and turned taquete. Vibrant colorways and iridescence can be created by using two or more colors in the warp.
In this round-robin workshop, participants will weave samples, study drafts and learn how to create a parallel threading.
