October 6 - October 10
Telemarksteppe is a Norwegian weaving technique from Telemark, a county of Norway located along its southeastern coast. Using six harnesses and five treadles, Telemarksteppe is a three-block structure woven on a tabby ground. Traditionally woven on a linen warp with wool pattern weft, Telemarksteppe also includes charming weft loops on the selvages. One of the great pleasures of weaving Telemarksteppe is the opportunity it offers to design at the loom using both color and pattern.
