Master the Magic of Doubleweave!

This workshop focuses on block structure in doubleweave, where you will weave separate block independently of one another. During this workshop you will learn the theory behind block doubleweave, and then weave a doubleweave sampler incorporating 18 variations of doubleweave blocks. Diagrams and photos throughout the course will support and reinforce the video lessons, and there is a downloadable handout in the Resources section with drafts and diagrams to help you weave your sampler.
