Weaving Overshot

with Madelyn Van Der Hoogt

DVD | 92 Minutes

From heirloom coverlets to dazzling contemporary household textiles and garments, overshot is one of the handsomest of weave structures. Whether woven in miniature on a towel or large-scale in a rug, overshot is striking. In this video, Madelyn van der Hoogt teaches everything you need to know to explore the many faces of overshot.
You’ll learn:
  • How to read, weave, and play with overshot drafts
  • Techniques to achieve balanced patterns
  • Why half-tones happen, and how you can use them in your designs
  • How to spot and weave overshot in rose-fashion and star-fashion
  • How to combine overshot threading with other treadlings, with spectacular results!
  • Ideas for playing with color and materials
Along with Madelyn’s video workshop, this DVD gives you a printable booklet on overshot weaving, complete with planning exercises, reference materials, and overshot projects you can learn from and use.

I found this to be an excellent DVD
I always enjoy Madelyn van der Hoogt and find her to be a wonderful instructor.

I have several of her DVDs and love them all. This one is no exception.

She clearly explains about different tie ups and alternate treadlings, how to add or subtract threads from the turning block, firmess of beat for different situations, using drafts from old books and how to make their design symmetrical, and much more.

I learned quite a lot from my first viewing and plan on watching many more times.

The included projects are beautiful and the planning lessons are clear and helpful.

All in all, a wonderful DVD.

Okay - not the best overshot information
The DVD was not as informative as I would have liked. The final discussion about finishing seemed to be a filler when more important information could have been included. I would rather have more about alternate treadlings and perhaps more discussion of appropriate materials and setts. Review by Cathy (Posted on 4/29/2015)
