Bateman Weaves, The Missing Monograph: The Basics and Beyond
Author: Linda Tilson Davis
In the mid-1900's, Dr. William Bateman, a Ph.D. in chemistry, spent his retirement years experimenting with weaving. He was not content with exploring only traditional, known weave structures. He developed several new ones that have become known as "Bateman Weaves." They include such names as Park, Boulevard, and Extended Divided Twills, among others. Texts and other information on these weaves are relatively scarce.
Bateman Weaves, The Missing Monograph, is an introduction and summary of these remarkable weaves. The monograph covers both Dr. Bateman's approaches and those of the author to appeal to a more contemporary audience.
Whether used as a guide or as a stand-alone text, The Missing Monograph fills a void in the weaver's library that includes:
- A summary of unique weaves created by Dr. Bateman: Park, Boulevard, Chevron, Blends, Extended Divided Twills, Extended Manifold Twills and Multiple Tabby, all in one monograph.
- Basic blocks for all weaves
- Over 150 full-color images
- Ideas for going beyond the basics
- Extensive bibliography
Linda Tilson Davis has been weaving for over 40 years. The colors and patterns of landscapes strongly influence her designs and approaches to weaving. Through the years she has come to specialize in tied weaves, twills and tartans. She teaches workshops and seminars and exhibits her work throughout the United States. When she isn’t weaving, she is enjoying the outdoors, mostly in the Pacific Northwest, with her husband Tom and their Golden Retriever, Koda. She also enjoys reading and doing volunteer work on behalf of her community’s library system. Other fiber arts such as knitting occupy her “spare time”.
