This is the final woven 'sample' for the master level. It is a scarf woven in a fine silk (2/60) set at 45 epi/ppi. I did a series of scarves and chose the best one to submit. :) The weave structure is huck lace.
In addition to the woven samples the candidate is sent fabric swatches that they are to analyze. The samples are handwoven and the candidate is to determine the threading, tie up and treadling and the yarns used. Sometimes this can be quite a challenge!
So, now that you've been given a tour of the fourth and final level of my tests, do you want a tour of the other test levels? The levels have been changed somewhat since I did them lo, these many years ago.
The test problems can be used as a personal study guide (along with Mary Black's (New) Key to Weaving and can be found on the Guild of Canadian Weavers website here. The file is a pdf which can be downloaded for free.
