Textiles : Thread and structure

warp sewing

Training  advanced students about textile conservation by learning about weaving techniques.  The training was on a small board of cardboard divided into squares.  Small alternating holes were made so the thread could be pushed through.  24 holes were made at the top and 24 holes on the bottom and were used for the warp thread.  16 holes were made for the weft threads.  This process helps us to understand  the structure of textiles from thread  and fibers.
