Main Conference Class #3
Five Threadings/Ten Treadlings (W)
Friday, Aug 2
9:00 - 4:30 pm

Diversify and dazzle your weaving in this 4-shaft class designed to help you explore how to weave different treadlings on just one threading. Each student will work at his/her own loom; this is not a round robin class. Students will bring to class a loom threaded with one of the following threading patterns provided by JoAnne: straight twill, monks belt, overshot, huck, rosepath or crackle. Students will weave samples using 10 different treadlings to achieve different effects on their particular warp. Warp 3 yards of any yarn in one color using instructions provided by JoAnne, with a sett of no less than 10 epi and about 8 to 10 inches wide. Bring weaving equipment including shuttles, notebook, pencil, scissors, small amounts of different colors of yarns as well as a main weft the same weight as the warp. Pre conference questions are welcomed:

Level: Beginner to intermediate weaving ability
Material fee: $5

Instructor: JoAnne Setzer

JoAnne started weaving in the 1980’s. After 20 years she fulfilled her dream to build a weaving barn, and she started offering weaving classes. Her weekly classes encourage all levels of weavers and allow students to go in any direction they choose with the craft. Consequently, each student is doing something different on the 20+ looms setup in the studio barn. Just imagine it! JoAnne has given workshops for MAWS and other guilds in crackle, beginning weaving, color and weave, kumihimo, inkle, pattern making for clothing, and 10 ways to treadle one threading. Some of these classes include 6 and 8 shafts, but most are for 4 shafts. Her current projects include tapestry, saori, weaving with handspan yarns and double weave on 4 shafts. JoAnne is constantly exploring new ideas with her ever creative and inventive mind. JoAnne is also a MAWS Living Treasure.
