Rep Weave Workshop

Rep Weave- Warped faced

My warp from the Rosalie Neilson‘s Rep Weave workshop put on by the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston guild, has been woven and is off the loom. It’s been a few years since I’ve woven Rep.
The workshop, “It’s in the Warp: Color& Design in Rep”, is  worth taking. Rosalie explained in a precise manner how this weave structure works. The 4 yd warp let one explore the design possibilities of this weave structure. Except for the trials caused by  the sticking harnesses on my 8 shaft Baby Mac loom this was a great workshop that I would highly recommend. Below are the pieces woven as I explored the possibilities of weaving rep.

  6. Beautiful! I’ve never woven anything like this but, then, I haven’t woven much at all yet! Rep weave looks very intriguing and the colors you chose seem perfect to show off the structure.
