Mugrugs and Gamps: Perfect Combination

Instructor: Marilyn Harrington

Weave a mugrug with twill gamps of your choosing. Customize the threading and color for each gamp section, then weave it with the colors and treadling of your choice. Then do it again using a different tieup. Study the results. Use a different fiber and weave it again. Weave it with tabby, weave it without tabby.
Sounds like a lot of weaving, but there is much to learn and the small mugrug is the perfect way to see how small changes in structure or color can make big changes in the fabric. How does a change in treadling affect the design? How does a change in tieup change the fabric? Does a change in fiber make the fabric more desirable for your intended use?
These questions are vital when starting to create fabric. Each must be answered before the warp is made. This class is designed to help you learn how to approach fabric design from a practical point of view.
Classes will be a combination of lecture, show and tell, and questions and answers. We will meet every other week for 12 weeks (6 meetings) to allow time for weaving.
This class is taught via the digital platform Zoom.
