Who are “we”?
Hi! I’m Tien Chiu.I’m obsessed with color.
I’ve spent countless hours poring over color theory and weaving books, then woven hundreds of swatches and dyed over 2500 yarn samples in my quest to understand color in weaving.
I’ve had my work in museum collections and featured on the cover of Handwoven; now my life’s goal is to give back to the weaving community, teaching others how to perfect weaving with color.
I’ve demystified color for over four thousand weavers already, and am looking forward to teaching you, too! (Also, I love cats!)
And I’m Janet Dawson! I’m a weaver and a teacher, a writer and an editor.
I’m good at math and patterns and also really good with words. According to the thousands of people I’ve taught both in person and in my online Floor Loom Weaving class on Craftsy, this combination is my superpower: I not only get this stuff, I explain it well and write about it clearly.
Great news, as helping others understand and enjoy all the parts of weaving – project planning and loom prep as well throwing the shuttle – is my favourite part of the whole business. (And I love cats more than Tien does!)
After having over 3,000 weavers enjoy our spring weave-along, we are thrilled to welcome you to the brand-new FALL Weave-Along! The breakthroughs and connections you’ll make will help motivate, empower, and improve your relationship with color…
And we’re so excited to invite you to experience it for yourself!
In this free weave-along, you’ll get a mix of live demos, prerecorded lessons, interactive exercises, and live Q&A sessions, where you’ll learn:
The fundamentals of designing beautiful cloth with a rule-set that finally makes sense
Why your colors mix into mud and the exact formula to solve the curse
How to choose colors and make sure your pattern shows
The role of the draft in color mixing and how to choose colors for bright or muted cloth
How to design with simple stripes that produce beautiful results
“Thank you so much, Tien and Janet. This Weave-Along has been a blast and oh the things I have learned. And sharing the journey with others has been inspirational and encouraging. What a treasure trove of creative juices flowing!”
