Same Warp Different Designs

Rep FlowersOk, I’ve been offline for a long time. Life got in the way. Some good and some bad , but  I’m going to try to get back in the groove of posting more often. These Rep weave pieces were woven with the warp from Rosalie Nielson’s workshop last October.( I don’t yet have another warp on that loom.) They were all done using the same tie-up. The different looks were created using treadling variations and weft differences. The first is a traditional rep weave, an original design. Applying the  design tools learned in Rosalie’s workshop made creating an original design a breeze.Cell Rep

This runner  does not have the thin weft in between each thick weft. It gives a totally different look. The weft is also half the thickness as the traditional rep runner. Below is a close up of a sample piece with this technique.

I’ll close with these Spring flowers from a recent trip to the Dallas Arboretum.

    • Judith, Our workshop was the first she had done sharing the design tools. In the near future she will be publishing a book with the techniques. But nothing is like a good workshop.
