Texture Weaving Class
Texture Weaving Class
Are you ready to make your weaves stand out above the rest? You need to working with texture! This class is designed to give you all the techniques and tools you will need to add life and personality to your weaves so that you can call them your own.
Calling all texture lovers! Finally! A class centered around modern textural techniques to take your tapestries from bleh to bold.
I am so excited to share my favorite techniques for all types of texture. From thick clouds of roving, to rows of curled rope, layers of knots, wrapped borders, hanging scallops, even pom poms and sequins. Everything I've included will elevate your tapestry compositions through layers of texture that you will want to sink your hands into. I've also included a list of my favorite textural fiber materials, along with their sources, plus a small video introduction explaining why I love them for weaving! As I am teaching, you will notice the materials being used in different ways and be able to order the exact same products that I am weaving with!
Each technique comes from dozens of messages from students asking for specific methods.

Q: Do you need to complete my first ecourse to start this one??
A: There are a few techniques that I will assume you know or recall, (whether from my course or somewhere else), such as twining, tucking the ends, weaver's knot, tabby, rya, soumak, hem stitch, weaving shapes, why I weave upside down, and overhand knots. However, the techniques are explained well enough that beginners can follow along. As always, you can pause, rewind and rewatch as many times as you need.
If you feel like you need to brush up on any of those skills please see my first ecourse, Welcome to Weaving HERE: https://www.etsy.com/listing/487754199/ebook-and-video-course-welcome-to
(See the second photo for a list of the exact techniques taught in this class.)

What is the quickest way to create layers of short rya?
How can I harness the fluffiness of roving?
How do I finish the ends of roving techniques?
Which is better: soumak or twining?
How can I add sequins and beads?
What is the easiest way to create pom poms?
How can I create 3d textural words/patterns?
"I would recommend this class to newbies and intermediate weavers alike. It's very easy to follow along and as a teacher Lindsey is very supportive of her students, which isn't something you'd expect from an online course (check out her instagram posts). I found that even for the techniques I already knew, Lindsey presented them in a new way that either taught me a better or quicker way to do them. So even if you've been weaving for awhile this course would be a good exercise to review or improve your skills <3
