The Power of Block Design
with Rosalie Nielsen

Block designs consist of black and white blocks on grid paper, where black is considered the pattern block and white the background block. Learn how weavers interpret block designs in color and texture in a variety of different weave structures. Find out how one weaver used the binary number system and the textures of 4 shaft huck lace to develop the definitive number of two block designs, and how these simple designs become the building blocks of more elaborate designs.

Rosalie is an avid weaver and braider who teaches workshops throughout the U.S., in Canada, and in England. She is known for her work in warp-faced rep weaving, having published numerous articles for magazines such as Handwoven, Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot, and Weaver's. Visit Rosalie's website.
