Deflected Double Weave

Deflected Double weave is a structure composed of two separate layers that each interlace only with themselves but also exchange places from front to back of the fabric.  It is not a true double weave but can give very different effects on opposite sides. Designs are possible in both 4 and 8 shafts and many effects can be achieved with variations in colour choices.  The class will run as a round robin to give participants the opportunity to sample several possibilities. Students should be comfortable with reading drafts and warping a loom.  Looms may be borrowed from the guild with a damage deposit.
