This Round Robin Workshop features 8-14 warped looms, each with a different pattern. When the workshop concludes, participants have a collection of pattern samples they've woven and a notebook of drawdowns.

The Swedish origins of Crackle weave will be presented, as well as Atwater's Introduction to American Weavers in the Late 1920s. Patterns are provided. Suggestions are given for warp, pattern weft, and tabby weft threads, and different ways to weave Crackle (4-shaft and 8-shaft) are explored.

Drafts assigned will include a variety of yarns, textures, and sizes. Participants will leave with a notebook of resources they can return to over and over for inspiration in creating their own drafts and projects. Notebooks contain extensive notes and bibliography.
