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.
