Exploring Branoe (overshot pick up)

Delve into this fascinating Russian technique!

Branoe is a pick up overshot technique that is historically popular in Russian weaving. Through researching this beautiful technique, I have found that it can be applied to rigid heddle weaving.

In this course you will learn to weave hearts, patterns, cats, snowmen and trees!

Includes over 2 hours of video time.

This short course will give you an introduction to using this technique in sampling as well as show you the design possibilities.

You will need:

a rigid heddle loom (any size)

contrasting yarns

pick up sticks appropriate to the size of your loom

Please note - in addition to the printable PDF designs, you will find in the "text" section of each video, individual instructions for working the patterns.
