Designing for the jacquard loom using Adobe Photoshop: Spring 2021
This workshop postponed due to Covid-19 will probably take place in late spring 2021, exact dates to be confirmed. Please Contact me if you would like to be advised of the new date.
This four day workshop provides an introduction to weaving on a TC2 digital jacquard handloom. You will learn to design in Photoshop from scratch, starting with your own damask designs and moving onto multiple shuttle weaves such as samitum and double weaves. Maximum number of students: 2.
You can expect to leave with a good overview of jacquard weave structures, the confidence to design your own, and to apply them in designs to weave on a digital jacquard handloom.
‘Belinda Rose is a gifted weaver and a born teacher. I was in her digital weaving on the TC2 class and had a simple and clear introduction to the computer preparations to be made before starting to weave. I had done this several times before but always forgot some details so my confidence was gone. Belinda’s patience with me did put me at ease and I finally understood the process. What a pleasure if it works out well!
Before starting to weave Belinda showed weave structures, among them several refined weaves like taqueté and samit, that I considered far too complicated for me as a beginner in digital weaving. Here again she made it clear that nothing is too difficult with this equipment and that these weaves can be fun to use. Again I made it and have some wonderful samples now, of which Belinda suggested that I should wash and iron to make them look even more textile, which they did! I am looking forward to my next stay in her studio.’
