We start with some basics on weaving yardage, what to weave and how to sett it. The most important part though, is finding out what you've got, and how to make it work for you. Learn how to know what's on the cone, or in the skein, and see how far it will go! the focus here is on 8 shafts. With 8 shafts you can magically combine structures and different yarns and create some inspiring and truly unique fabrics. Lots of drafts and lots of examples.
A PDF digital downloadable version of the lecture will be available for participants before the presentation.
