This course is available to members and open to the public, but it is advisable to have done some Harness weaving and to have a basic knowledge of weave structures. It is offered in tandem with 201: Introduction to the TC2 Jacquard Loom and Loom Control Software.

This course will give participants an overview of using Photoshop specifically for the preparation of Jacquard Weave files with reference to the ‘Woven Pixel’ approach. There will be a discussion that delves into weave structures, the relationship between warp and weft and the creation of tone. The workshop will provide a basic pathway for translating an image or repeat pattern, reducing colours, loading weave notations as pattern fills and finalising files. It will concentrate on the steps needed to manipulate a photographic image to produce a monochromatic woven file with satin and sateen structures allocated to monochromatic scale.

Please Note: This workshop will take place in the Computer Lab and does not include time to Weave up Files. Participants must complement this course with 201: Introduction to the TC2 Jacquard Loom and Loom Control Software before accessing the loom.
