Color is one of the most exciting components of weaving, and… learning to use colors confidently can be challenging. Mixing yarn colors doesn't work like mixing colors with paint, and even experienced professionals with in-depth color knowledge are often surprised by color effects in woven cloth. 

In this workshop students explore color compositions, weave samples in two weave structures on four shafts, and discover how to effectively translate color combinations into woven cloth. The workshop is a combination of presentation, discussion, and weaving; it is not a round robin workshop. Students will complete the workshop with a greater understanding of how colors interact in woven cloth. They will learn how to sample effectively and how to evaluate ideas for cloth using their sample color combinations. They will leave the workshop with woven samples and the confidence in their own creativity and ability to work successfully with color.  

This workshop includes a pre-wound warp (mailed 1 month prior to the workshop) and a selection of over 100 colors of 8/2 cotton for weft.
