Pampa weaving tutorial Part II

To start weaving we are going to suppose this is our scheme:

esquema

Where each square is formed by four pairs of threads and we can chose how many times to repeat it in order to the design we want (more or less elongated)

The pairs have to be always the same in quantity and take care in the order you put them up and down.

Once we have chosen them we are going to put the stick as a guide and then we are going to make the cross and put the two other sticks.

Now we start to weave!

First we are going to approximate the guide to the first stick and you are going to see there are threads that are over it… here you have to pass another piece (I have another kind of stick but thin) to open the shed, here you pass the threads to weave (I pass them double to have more structure)

Do the same in the back part and be careful because here you can’t see the threads so it is better to help yourself with your hands to feel if there are some threads out of place.

Now we take off the first stick (not the guide one) and do the same process with the other one. Once you have finish you have completed the row.

You are going to see that at one point you are going to need to tie off the threads and retie them between them (not to the loom) if not the tension is going to be at the maximum and is going to be impossible to weave.

It is very important to control the threads tension because sometimes depending on the material they lost tension and need to be cut and tie to continue

This is it! If you need something else… just ask!

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
