Backstrap Weaving

Backstrap Weaving with

Saturday, August 18th, 2018, 10:00am - 3:30pm

The ancient craft of backstrap weaving is still practised by many indigenous weavers across the world today. The loom, which comprises nothing more than a set of simple sticks, allows a weaver to produce anything from narrow simple bands to wide pieces of cloth covered with complex pick-up patterns.

In this two-day workshop, students will start out on pre-warped looms to learn the basics of backstrap loom operation in which the weaver uses movements of his/her own body to adjust tension and open the sheds. The weaver is the loom! Other skills include making continuous string heddles, sword management and inserting the weft correctly to create even selvages.

We will weave plain-weave bands and then quickly progress to learning the principles of complementary-warp pick-up patterning using the patterns that are typically learned by young weavers of the Andes. These principles will then be applied to wider warps that the participants will themselves create, allowing them to advance to more complex patterns.
