Join us on May 14th, 2022 as Jennifer Moore presents her 1-hour seminar on Mathemagical Design: Geometry in Textiles.
Since ancient times, human beings have observed the world around them and found recurring patterns in nature. The Golden Proportion, the Fibonacci Series, symmetry movements, tessellations and fractals are some of the mathematical ideas that have found their way into art and architecture for thousands of years. In this slide show Jennifer will show examples of how these ideas have been used throughout history, various cultures, and particularly in contemporary fiber art.
Jennifer has been teaching her Double Rainbow Doubleweave online workshop with us this past year, and she is an amazing teacher. Prepare to have lots of great ideas at the end of this seminar.

We have four new sections of Jennifer Moore’s amazing Double Rainbow class that will be held in 2022. Join in the fun of the on-line workshop with Jennifer! You will be weaving in your home or studio on your own loom, and Jennifer will be meeting with you via Zoom. And the classes will be limited to 25 participants so you will have lots of individual time to ask questions and get to know Jennifer.
The currently scheduled workshop dates are:
- Workshop #1: February 22, 24 and March 1, 3, 2022
- Workshop #2: May 2, 5, 9, 12, 2022
- Workshop #3: August 4, 6, 11, 13, 2022
- Workshop #4: December 5, 8, 10, 12, 2022
Additionally, the 4-days format gives you lots of time to weave your sampler during the workshop, because the class time is spread out over 10 days. Each of the 4 class will meet from 10-2 Mountain Time. And as you can see from the schedule, you will have time in between the class periods to weave on your loom. Lots of this year’s participants in Jennifer’s classes have liked the 2-week format of the classes. That way you have time to do the weaving in between classes, and you can process all the amazing information that Jennifer shares with you in the 4 days of class time. You might even want to put on a longer warp because you will have more time to weave!

Weave two projects in the full 20-color Tubular Spectrum™ with one warp on your 8-shaft loom. The first project is woven in warp-faced twill blocks with a 20-color rotation warp using the 10/2 Tubular Spectrum™ and black weft. Then by changing the tie-up, the second project becomes a two-block doubleweave with a 20-color rotation in both the warp and the wefts. There is enough yarn to make the two projects into either shawls or table runners. Choose what fits your lifestyle!
Listen to the Loon! Difficulty level is Intermediate to Advanced (Two fish). This is an Eight harness kit.
