Jacquard Weaving

with the

TC-2 in Cathryn's Studio

 Class Accommodations:


I have a large table, comfortable sofas and chairs, and a smart TV for projecting/teaching. There is also a good patio for breaks and summer breezes. The neighborhood is excellent for walking and includes nearby B & B's and other reasonable accommodations if required.


My loom is warped at 90 ends per inch. Weaving width is 29.5 inches. The current warp is black and white alternating 20/2 mercerized cotton.


I can provide basic tools and equipment - shuttles and a small selection of yarns but you may also bring your own.


Participants must have their own laptop with a copy of photoshop installed.

Beyond Ann Arbor:


Can't make the workshops in Ann Arbor? I also teach workshops around the country in different venues. Check out my upcoming workshops below:


         This workshop will focus on the development of imagery in cloth through the              building of color palettes using single and/or multi-shuttle weave structures.


WHEN: Tuesday, June 14th - Thursday, June 16th


         The TC2 is a hand loom that digitally controls every thread in the warp independently, expanding options for image, color, texture, and dimension.


WHEN: Sunday, June 26th - Friday, July 8th


          Learn how hand weaving on the Jacquard loom can unleash your creativity. This workshop will focus on the development of imagery in cloth through the building of color palettes using multi-shuttle weave structures.

 Course content:


Every course is flexible and can conform to the experience and interests of the participants.


These workshops are suitable for all levels. If you are new to the TC-2 or Jacquard Weaving we can begin with an introduction to Photoshop and how it is used in this context, followed by weaving a sample. More experienced weavers may wish to focus on a weave structure or technique.


Every workshop will include discussions about warp densities, loom set up, winding, warping, end feed shuttles, and winding bobbins, etc.


Arrangements for course content should be made when you register so I can prepare the necessary curricular documents.
