2.2 Weaving the Twill Gamp

Felicia Lo November 2, 2021

In this lesson, 2.2 Weaving the Twill Gamp, Felicia will show you how to weave the twill gamp.

Starting at the begin, we will weave tromp as writ. Next, Felicia has chosen 4 more treadling sequences that will produce different pattern effects. After that, well, that is up to you. You can either continue to play with different treadling patterns or like Felicia, change up the weft yarn. Sampling can be so rewarding so take the time to explore any ideas you had while weaving the gamp.

Remember to download the Twill Gamp pattern PDF and Weaving Twills on 4-Shafts workbook PDF and share your gamp in our community forums. Fellow members are always curious to see what other people are using. You can also show off your projects on Instagram with the hashtag #schoolofsweetgeorgia and #sosweaving .
