Color Theory Through Weaving

Course Overview

We all have an innate color personality - colors that we're drawn to that describe who we are and how we see the world. Just as painters mix colors on a canvas, weavers combine colors on the loom to create new combinations optically. However, the colors that we're drawn to don't always react as predicted on the loom! In this class, we will study color theory and apply it to textiles and weave structures, while learning various techniques for designing on and off the loom to create stunning weavings. Through curiosity and playfulness, students will weave four cotton napkins in various weave structures. Students will learn how to follow a color story created in warp and weft to connect each unique piece of cloth. Some experience weaving will be helpful but not required.
