The Southeast Fiber Forum Association holds a workshop every other year at Arrowmont in Gatlinburg, TN. I went in 2013 and 2105 and have enjoyed both times. Attendees get to pick one 3-day workshop. Arrowmont is one of the Settlement Schools that taught crafts and general education to community residents, to increase their earning potential during the Depression. The facility has lodging, classrooms, a crafts library and a community dining room for the students. SFFA takes over the entire facility over the long weekend. I got lucky this time and got my first pick, a workshop on deflected doubleweave, taught by Elisabeth Hill. Deflected Double Weave is a structure I had never woven before and I was glad to learn about it and try out lots of different treadling options.
Lisa is a great instructor and she sent us warps and we had to put these on the loom prior to arriving in Gatlinburg. This was a it of a problem, since we were living in MT and the loom that needed to be warped was in NC. The warps and wefts were a mix of tencel and alpaca/silk blend.
DDW allows you to weave some big designs, including circles. The differential shrinkage between the yarns also leads to interesting movement in the cloth.
