WORKSHOP 3: Three Color Pickup
DATE: Monday April 4, 2022
Location: Sequim Community Church
Sequim (950 N 5th Ave.)
Deposit: $20* (Est. cost per workshop $40.00 - $60.00)
Level: For experienced inkle weavers only. Students must have experience with Baltic Pickup.
Weavers who have already been doing Baltic-style pickup work will be amazed at how easy it is to add more color and complexity to pattern motifs and create fantastic new ones. Unknown to most modern weavers, 3-Color Pickup is an older technique for which pattern books have not been readily available until now. To weave this variation, it’s essential that you have a working knowledge of regular Baltic pickup. First we will look at samples and discuss what makes this different from the typical Baltic patterns. By viewing the samples, students will get an understanding of the difference between asymmetrical and symmetrical threadings as well as tips for choosing colors to make the patterns pop. We will also look at charts and learn how to follow them and to create your own. Students will warp their looms and practice weaving various motifs using pattern charts supplied by the instructor.
