January 8th, 2019, Weaving A Color Blended Scarf, With Deborah Jarchow
January 8th, 2019
11:00am - 4:00pm
COLOR BLENDING ON THE LOOM
Description: Learn the secrets for blending the colors in your weaving. Have you looked at some of the gorgeous color packs so many dyers are making and wondered how to best use them in your weaving? By using 4 - 5 colors of yarn that are close in shades, and the techniques you learn in this class, you can create a piece that blends the colors beautifully! Colors will be mixed in both the warp and the weft so the gradients flow together almost invisibly. This technique can provide the basis for many future exciting projects!
Supplies to bring: 4 - 5 closely related colors of about worsted weight yarn, 80 yards each color, 150 additional yards of darkest color - yarn must already be wound into balls, 10 - 15 yards waste yarn (worsted weight acrylic works best), measuring tape, manila file folder, tapestry needle, scissors, cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, rigid heddle loom with at least 8” wide weaving width and 8 or 7.5 dent reed, warping peg, sley hook and threading hook.
Note: Rigid-heddle looms provided for class use, while supplies last.
Whether you're new to Rigid Heddle Weaving or have been in a class with Deborah before, you are welcome. Deborah adjusts her course to fit the level of each student! Come join in.
