For not yet experienced users of the weaving program WinWeef a course of 5 lessons. In the first lesson, all actions and tricks are taught to enjoy working with WinWeef. In four follow-up lessons we will discuss the many possibilities to make original designs yourself in different weaving techniques.
The demo version of WinWeef can be used.
A course in weave design with parallel threadings, also called echo threadings. WinWeef is ideally suited for adding echoes from a design line, literally in a few mouse clicks. Coloring the threads, drawing treadlings and tie-ups, it all goes just as fast. A number of topics from the book are covered in the lessons, and after this course the book Weaving with Echo and Iris is just a piece of cake.
Different weaving structures with a threading with only 1 binding shaft are discussed. To start with, the different effects of twill and basket designs, which produce beautiful, damask-like fabrics with relatively few shafts. The proportions between the tie and pattern threads create different weaves with fascinating structures.
Deflected Double Weaves can be designed in many different ways. Starting from a profile for overshot, for example, a completely different design is created than starting from a profile for crackle. For the course, a choice is made from the many options and ways as described in the book Double with a Twist.
There are many types of double weave, and just as many ways to design them. A great adventure, relatively easy to realize with a tool like WinWeef.
Each course includes 5 lessons of 2 hours. The first is free because it is a lesson in which the program WinWeef and its convenient use is discussed. The lessons are given with Zoom, so that you can follow step by step how the design processes work. The lessons can be followed with the Demo version of WinWeef. Even weavers who have a different program can apply the actions with their own program.
