Boundweaving Video

The Coptic Tapestry Albums

Boundweaving teaches you how to design, draft, and weave interesting and intriguing weft-faced patterns and figures formed with boundwoven techniques. You will learn how rosepath threading (1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 4, 3, 2) can create an infinite variety of designs by varying the tie-up, treadling, and color order of the wefts. The three sample projects woven could become an elegant evening purse in silk or perle cotton, a casual clutch in cotton or wool, or an eyeglass case. The same projects could be enlarged for projects or even framed wall pieces. The boundweaving theory and weaving techniques learned and practiced will prepare you for further explorations with the weft-faced weaves used in rug weaving.
