Weaving lab at FIDM

Did you know the students at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles learn how to weave?  Neither did I.

Each loom in this lab is warped with a different weave structure.  The students     weave on each loom with a variety of fibers so that they understand the mechanics and possibilities afforded by a twill v a plain weave v double weave  ect…

AWESOME!!!  I wish I had 8 looms to work samples on!
