Join us if you can!
Damaskvev is a textbook on the setting up and weaving of damask with a drawloom and is the first Norwegian textbook published on this topic since 1849.
Knowing Norwegian would be useful, but there is plenty to work with here just looking at all the pictures.
The book also shows the setting up of single unit and how it can be used in combination with the shaft draw system. An introduction to drawing your own patterns, plus many patterns ready to go using 10−75 shafts completes this encyclopedia of inspiration.
You can watch Becky’s video review of the book on its web store page.
Drawloom & Linen Treasures projects
We offer two gorgeous and challenging projects for our Drawloom Basics/Drawloom ABC alumni: A Damask Tablecloth and a Lithuanian Opphämta with Monksbelt Tablecloth.
Lithuanian Opphämta with Monksbelt Tablecloth
Inspired by Kati Meek’s book Relections from a Flaxen Past: For Love of Lithuanian Weaving, we proudly offer this treat of a warp. Take this opportunity to weave a wide piece of Opphämta, with Monksbelt stripes as used in Lithuania’s breathtaking traditional costumes.
Kati offers us a plentiful selection of beautiful 21 shaft patterns in her book to inspire your creativity.
