"  Reverse Drafting: Well-intentioned Destruction"

with Emily Winter

Reverse drafting is the process of unraveling woven cloth and diagramming its construction on graph paper using draft notation. It’s a great way to get to know weave structure. Puzzle lovers of all stripes (weaver or not) get a kick out of the process. It’s kind of like a material sudoku. In this program, Emily Winter from The Weaving Mill will present on the Reverse Drafting Club, a mail-based weave analysis program run by TWM and demonstrate the process of reverse drafting using provided swatches.

All levels welcome!
Provide your own graph paper and colored pencils, swatches will be provided.
