Floor Loom 201 – Color Study (3-day)

fibercrafts

3 day class

We take color for granted until we need to plan a woven piece. Why do some colors clash? Why do some colors work? Why does one color seem to grab all the attention? Why do colors that looked good in the planning stage disappoint us when they are put together? In this class we will teach you how to work with color using a color wheel. You will then weave a color study blanket.

In the three-day color study workshop you will be warping the loom with three different values of each of the primary (yellow, blue, red) and secondary (green, purple, orange) colors plus black, grey and light grey in one inch bands. Then, as you weave the weft, you repeat the color order of the warp, giving you not only a beautiful blanket but a valuable color reference. You will be able to see new hues appear row by row as the colors are combined across the weft in 2″ squares.

This class is from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
