Designing in Huck Lace

About Designing in Huck Lace

It's easy to design Huck Texture and Huck Lace! After all, it is simply alternating those plain weave tabby picks, adding or subtracting along the way, to make those beautiful horizontal and vertical floats. Whether you are interested in designing with 4 shafts or 8 shafts, I will show you how easy it is to design Huck Lace!

We will begin with the foundations of 4 shaft Huck texture/lace through the threading, tie ups and treadling so that we can explore all combinations for designing two blocks on 4 shafts. Then we transition into designing with all six blocks on 8 shafts. As a class, we will design a Huck Lace pattern and draft it live, demonstrating on my weaving software. There is a template in the booklet for participants to design more drafts independently after the session.

The class fee includes an in-depth instructional pdf booklet designed with step-by-step instructions for understanding and designing four and eight shaft Huck as well as helpful illustrations. The booklet is a great resource to add to any weaving reference library. Jill encourages interaction throughout class, and welcomes questions and comments as part of the interactive learning process.

This class is limited to 15 students.

Jill has been teaching online virtual weaving classes since the start of the pandemic. Her greatest joy is teaching weavers to design cloth through understanding individual weave structure's unique rules for threading, tie up and treadling. She has taught virtual workshops and lectures on multiple weaving topics such as blocks and profile drafting, turning a draft, blending a draft, as well as exploring structures like overshot, laces, summer and winter, and twills.
