Weavers seduced by gorgeous colored yarns often fail to use them successfully. The usual approach to this problem is to learn color theory -- a huge and daunting undertaking. Learning terminology is NOT the equivalent of learning to use color well. What is needed is a method to translate color theory, terminology and yarn wrappings into actual weaving. You donít need to master color theory to use color masterfully.

Using one color palette and a myriad of weave structures, weíll take a laymanís approach to color theory and the principles of optical blending for a facilitated, semi-scientific investigation of color design. Weaving in round-robin format on pre-warped looms (with custom-wound warps provided by Ruby), participants will explore the effect different fibers, yarn grists and structures have upon a single colorway. By weaving a color sampler at each loom, everyone will produce the equivalent of a case study in color and weave structure -- a reference tool for weavers to successfully integrate color and design into their cloth-making repertoire.

Beginning level weaving experience : student should be able to read a draft and weave without assistance.
