About This Course
The presentation will take you on a journey through the development process, from start to finish, of a woven textile. Each stage of the process; the initial inspiration of a design, how a yarn is manufactured dyed and utilized, the importance of the loom and weaving, to other considerations like performance guidelines and finishing, will be explored and explained. Through inspiration and education, you will walk away with a renewed appreciation for the fabrics you specify on a project.
