Robyn Spady – November 2020

Robyn Spady was introduced to handweaving as baby with her handwoven baby blanket woven by her great-grandmother. Inspired by her blankie, she learned to weave at a young age and has been weaving for over 40 years. She completed HGA’s Certificate of Excellence (COE) in 2004 with the specialized study Loom-controlled Stitched Double Cloth. Robyn is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads and loves coming up with new ideas to create fabric and transform it into something new and exciting. She is committed to turning the weaving world on to double-faced fabrics, four-shaft weaves, uncommon and advanced weave structures, and passementerie techniques. Robyn is also the founder and editor of Heddlecraft® magazine.

Some of the best weaving tools were not originally designed for weavers; however, they can make weaving easier or provide solutions to the everyday challenges that leave weavers frustrated or scratching their heads. Some of these are “weaving hacks,” some of these are repurposed tools, and some defy definition. In this presentation, Robyn will present over 40 gizmos and gadgets to improve your weaving.

Hate to warp, but love to weave? Want more versatility from a single warp? Then this is a workshop for you! In this workshop, participants will warp their loom with their choice of one of three four-shaft threadings and perform an extreme makeover and weave it many different ways… from twill, lace, and overshot to swivel, corduroy, deflected weft, and double-faced. At the same time, participants are presented with the basics of different structures and how to adapt a single threading to weave a number of different weaves, concepts such as star vs. rose fashion, weaving on opposites, and echo treadling. Four-shaft loom required. (Note: This is not a round-robin workshop.)

Number of students: 13 minimum, 20 maximum

Duration: 2 full days (6 hours each day)

Workshop for guild members: $180 plus $15 Materials fee
Workshop for non guild members: $215 plus $15 Materials fee

Cancellation Policy: Refunds will only be made for cancellations if the remaining registration meets the minimum participant requirement for the workshop. Refunds will not be made for workshop costs already incurred at the time of cancellation (such as materials fees).
