- Weavers should be able to weave DDW confidently
- Before taking this course, start with a foundational class such as:
Included in the video download:
- 80 minutes of detailed instructional video
- Course workbook DDW gamp sampler pattern and 10 other drafts
- Skeleton tie-up for countermarch looms**
Materials and equipment:
- For the video, you'll want a printed copy of the provided workbook for notes and for reference alongside many of the video lessons.
- To weave the DDW sampler, you’ll need an 8-shaft floor or table loom, 12- or 15-dent reed, 2 shuttles, 2–3 bobbins, tape measure, T-pins, weights for broken ends, and scissors. Floor loom weavers will need 24 treadle cords or pins for their tie-up.
**Note: In this course, Janney weaves on a jack loom with a skeleton tie-up to eliminate the necessity of retying her treadles. We’ve added a skeleton tie-up for countermarch-loom weavers that also allows you to follow along without retying.
Janney Simpson relishes the "ah-ha" moment when new weavers throw a shuttle for the first time. She has been weaving for more than 35 years. After getting bitten by the deflected doubleweave bug a decade ago, she started teaching DDW locally and nationally. Often accompanied by a golden retriever in her studio, she weaves on looms of all breeds.
