It's in the Warp - Color Design in Rep
Workshop by Rosalie Nielsen

Two different colored warps (a pattern colorway and a background colorway) combine with thick and thin weft to form the elements for exploring block design in warp-faced rep. Participants learned how "blocks" of rep threaded on four and eight shafts can be combined to expand design possibilities.

Discussions focused on profile drafting, use of color, movement of blocks in independent and linked fashion, skeleton tie-ups, different threading systems and design considerations for four shaft and multiple harness looms. Working on their own pre-threaded looms, weavers learned to understand the weave structure of rep, sampling with different weight wefts to create textiles suitable for the table, wall and floor.
