  • Instructor: Deb Silver Wednesdays, April 6, 13, 20, 17 & May 4.  6:00-9:00pm Praxis is excited to offer an advanced weaving course with artist, Deb Silver. Double weave is a technique where two layers of cloth are woven simultaneously. After warp set up, many techniques will be covered such as color blending, differential setts and shrinkage, and deflected double weave. This is an intermediate weaving class aimed at participants who have prior weaving experience. You should be comfortable winding and warping your loom and reading simple drafts. There will be 4 and 8 shaft options to accommodate all loom types and preferences.  Participants will have access to our facility during weekly open studios on Wednesdays and Sundays, 12-4pm to continue individual work on your projects.
