Wet-Finishing for Weavers
Wet Finishing for Weavers: Creating Finished Cloth
by Laura Fry
Wet-finishing is the process that turns weaving into cloth. Handwoven threads need water and motion to open them up, flatten them out, move them into place, or shrink them into the fabric that you intend them to be.
In this video, professional weaver and teacher Laura Fry shows you how to wet-finish different kinds of fibers and cloth, from the magic that happens in the water through to proper pressing and drying techniques.
Through demonstration and myriad samples, Laura shares expertise derived from years of research and experimentation, so you, too, can produce professional-quality finished cloth.
By seeing her fabrics before and after wet finishing, youíll understand why Laura says, "It isnít finished until itís wet-finished."
