Color mixing and optical illusion are not often the first things that come to mind when thinking about woven textiles, however, in the hands of a skillful weaver, specifically colored threads, paired with sophisticated patterns can create unexpected and impactful color moments. More info...

In this four-week class, students will learn the nuances of color theory for woven textiles on a rigid heddle loom. Ideal for students with some weaving experience, this class will expand on color relationships and phenomena, such as value, hue, color relativity and optical mixing as it relates to the warp and weft. Students will learn how perception of color changes in relationship to other colors, and how to use this to your advantage in woven design. Experienced weaver and textile artist, Ahnika Wood will lead students in a variety of graphic techniques, and techniques to create visual texture. By the end of this workshop, students will leave with several color compositions on paper, yarn cards, and woven swatches of color studies.

Looms and all materials are provided by WildCraft.
