Doubleweave piece by Jennifer Moore.

The Hawaii Handweavers’ Hui will present workshops by Jennifer Moore in Honolulu and Kailua, Kona on the Big Island in January.

Moore is a renowned expert on doubleweave. She has been widely exhibited for 25 years throughout the U.S. and abroad. She currently has her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Learn more about her at www.doubleweaver.com

The Honolulu workshop will be held January 6 – 8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Academy Art Center at Linekona. The weaving room will be available on January 5 for those who want to set up their looms early.

The Honolulu workshop will involve a variety of drafts for four- and eight-shaft looms. Each weaver will select one draft and set up one loom, but participants will sample all the different options, round-robin fashion. The drafts will include eight harness twill pick-up, eight harness block pickup, four harness double-blocks and many other techniques.

Class notebooks will contain all the drafts for all the participants.

The Kailua, Kona workshop will be held January 13 – 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Island Yarns and Art Supplies. The workshop will cover basic doubleweave techniques for 4-shaft looms including weaving two independent layers of cloth, double width cloth, tubular weaving and many variations. All participants will use the same draft and will weave a sampler of all the techniques. If resources permit, they may also be able to try out additional techniques on an extra loom set up with a different draft.

Cost for each workshop is $200 for Hui members with a 10% discount for students and teachers. There will be an additional supply fee of $20 to be paid on the first day of class. To register, e-mail steinhof@hawaii.edu.com. and ask to be sent a registration form.
