Barbara J Walker Weaving Workshop in Butler PA

Butler Spinners & Weavers Guild Spring Weaving Workshop

 Instructor:  Barbara J. Walker

Class:  Color and Weave Duets

Start with a basic weave structure such as plain weave or twill, add an alternating color sequence, add two shuttles, mix together, and voilá: color-and-weave cloth.

Whether you’re a color/texture weaver or a structure junkie, you’ll enjoy weaving duets of structures and color-and-weave counterparts, and learn a few woven embellishments to add to your repertoire. This is weave structure and color theory for smarties.

3 day round robin workshop demonstrates how color sequencing can totally transform the appearance of a weave structure.  Structure exercises and color theory will entice students to develop their own color and weave designs.  Sample weaving includes duets of a weave structure and its color and weave counterpart.
