SKU: Workshop


Weave a fine cotton velvet sample with 15 piles per inch on an 8-shaft loom. Build your own velvet bobbin rack out of PVC pipe or rent one of Barbara’s.

Follow the draft to thread a 2 block velvet design and dress your loom prior to the workshop using the ground warp and ‘stand-in’ pile warp that Barbara provides using 4 shafts for the pile and 4 shafts for the ground warp. Learn how to fill E Z Bobs with the pile warp at the workshop. Learn how to subdivide your bobbin rack into sections according to design elements.

Explore velvet textures like cut vs. uncut pile, voided areas, and different ground weaves and supplementary weft enrichments. Examine Barbara’s velvet collection and learn to distinguish Western European from Asian velvets.
