Plate representing Winding, Warping with a new improved Warping Mill and Weaving
Artist: Hincks, W.
This is the seventh plate in a series of twelve views of the linen manufacturing process, produced by W. Hincks and depicts three workers weaving linen in an 18th century mill. Weaving was usually done by male workers either in a mill such as this one, or in the home. To the right of this print is an example of a new type of warping machine where yarn was wound from a rack of bobbins to the warp frame. To the left of the print a hand loom weaver is working a plain linen loom using the traditional curved shuttle.
