Instructor: Sarah Saulson
Workshop Description: Designing for Creative Weaving
Weaving is a unique creative medium that asks us to make many design decisions before we even touch our yarn. That can seem intimidating, but you’ll learn an approach to simplify and demystify the process. We will approach design as a logical progression, starting with a concept or visual inspiration, and learn how it can inform our choices for fiber content, sett, dimensions, color, structure and pattern. You’ll have a playbook to help you create your own wonderful, personal handwovens.
A color wheel, if you already own one
An image from a magazine, other printed source, or one you took yourself. It should have simple shapes and colors you find pleasing
Optional: a yarn from your stash you would like to use in a project.
If you bring yarn, also bring a ruler.
Materials/Handouts Fee: None
Attendee Limit: 22
