Workshop Report: Crackle Weaving (Christine Dittrich)
We have just finished a fabulous 3 day Crackle Workshop with Susan Wilson. Crackle is a twill weave block structure originally brought to the United States from Sweden. One of its great attributes is that it allows for tremendous color and texture variation. You get a HUGE bang for your buck! The design options are just about endless! Susan deftly combined lecture and practice and we were rapidly on our way producing beautiful samplers. While her enormous suitcase of samples continued to inspire and delight as we learned each technique. 17 Guild members from Juneau to Anchor Point to the Anchorage Bowl now can add some new sparkle and crackle to their weaving repertoire and can enliven our designing with this versatile and fascinating structure. Hooray! Many thanks to all the Guild members who helped make this such a success, notably Bonnie Tisler, Julie Carter and Sara Pate and to the enthusiasm of all the participants!
