Instructor: Bobbie Irwin
Workshop Description: Weaving with Space-Dyed Yarn
Space-dyed yarns—those with a sequence of colors—are tempting, yet they can be frustrating to work with. Learn how to use these yarns to their best advantage and how to help predict the results. We’ll discuss combining them effectively with solid-colored yarns, manipulating warp and weft, and choosing effective weave structures. We’ll analyze space-dyed yarns to look for color repeats and experiment with shifting, tapestry-like patterns.
This class is suitable for weavers at all levels. Bring at least 10 yards each of one or more space-dyed yarns (not spot-dyed), on cones or balls; 3 distinct colored pencils or markers; graph paper (4 or 5 squares per inch).
Materials/Handouts Fee: None
Attendee Limit: 20
