Color is one of the most exciting components of weaving and.. learning to use color confidently can be challenging. Mixing yarn colors does not work like mixing paint colors, and even experienced professionals with in depth color knowledge are often surprised but the color effects in woven cloth. In this workshop participants will explore fresh ideas for developing color studies, learn how various weave structures impact color interaction, and understand how to effectively translate color combinations into woven cloth.
Students will explore color compositions, weave samples in 3 weave structures and discover fresh ideas for translating color combinations into woven cloth. The workshop is a combination of presentation, discussion and weaving; it is NOT a round robin. Students will complete the workshop with a greater understanding of how color interact in woven cloth. They will know how to sample effectively and how to evaluate ideas for cloth using their sample combinations. They will leave the workshop with woven samples and confidence in their own creativity. This workshop includes a pre wound warp and a selection of over 60 colors of 8/2 cotton for weft.
