This will be a presentation documenting the process of creating a high-end designer scarf with mathematical patterns, from concept design to final product. The journey will take us from pencil, paper, and computer design, to spreadsheet assisted dyeing of yarns, to the preparation the loom, to the weaving process itself, and the final finishing touches to arrive at the beautiful finished product. Hopefully it will familiarize the uninitiated with the processes involved in creating a real world woven object.
I also hope that this discussion will inspire collaborations for future work involving computerized looms, computer-assisted weaving designs, new tech-enhanced fibers, and anything else that could extend the possibilities of weaving. Maybe next conference we will have a working computerized loom!
