Teanaustaye Studio - Lectures and Seminars - Skillbragd, Smaalandsvav, Threaded Opphampta

The different names given to a Scandinavian weave woven on a double harness loom, with pattern shafts in the front and ground shafts in the back. Warp threads go through several heddles at once, up to about 8. Supplementary weft patterning leads to interesting combinations across the cloth. The use of block theory for threading creates even more possibilities. With samples and patterns shared by Skillbragd weavers, this lecture will compile methods and ideas to successfully weave Skillbragd.
