Welcome to our Course Roadmap! This shows all our classes, in the order we’d recommend taking them for a particular course of study. It also shows the many tools we offer.

Of course, you don’t have to follow the Course Roadmap! You can take any class whenever you like. We believe in weaving your way, and that means learning your way, too. 

You can get access to ALL these classes and tools with a subscription to the Academy!

Color Editor Draft Editor Twill Tie-ups

Color Editor

Handweaving.net's Color Editor puts all the Draft Editor's color tools front and center where they're easy to find.

Draft Editor

Handweaving.net's Draft Editor is a powerful but easy to learn and use browser based tool for editing weaving drafts.

Twill

Quickly generate the threading, tie-up, and treadling for a specific twill or generate a random twill based on your inputs.

Tie-ups

The 4 Shaft Tie-up Converter converts any tie-up for four shafts and six treadles to rising shed, sinking shed, and both rising and sinking shed tie-ups.

Also available for 8 Shafts and 10 treadles.
