Join master weaver, Laura Fry, at Magic in the Water: Wet Finishing for Weaving!
Wet finishing is the term used for the very first time that a web of interlaced threads is introduced to water and the transformation that it undergoes. No matter if the initial transformation is subtle or dramatic, it will change that first time. It’s pretty magical!
In the weaving course videos, Laura talks about what wet finishing is and the various ways to apply the process to your handwoven projects. The final step in bringing your individually interlaced threads into real cloth, we’ll look at working with wool and how to full things, brushing a nap, working with cotton and linen and even some silk, and explore what happens when you change things like your density, weave structure, and how much you full your wool and how that affects the end product.
