jacquard weaving workshops

Designing for the jacquard loom using Photoshop

These workshops are suitable for those with experience of handweaving. Participants should bring their own laptop with Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements installed.

Introductory to advanced workshops

Two day workshops provide a short introduction to designing weave structures in Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements specifically for weaving on a  jacquard looms including the TC-1 & TC-2 loom. The workshop will explain how weaves are created for a digital weaving file and also the TC loom control programme. Participants will get experience of working with the TC-1 loom in the studio and have the chance to complete a design and a small test weave.

Longer workshops extend to designing more complex weave structures, such as lampas and other specific weaves as requested. Students can expect to leave with a good overview of weave structures, the confidence to design their own, and to apply them to a weaving.

One to one tuition is also available. Please contact me or call me on +44 (0)1330 844409 to discuss.
