Students will weave with multiple colors to produce several different effects. We’ll briefly go over the basics of color theory and how this pertains to weaving and weaving yarns.This will mostly be weft faced weaving on a rigid heddle or shaft loom.  These are perfect for rugs and wall hangings, but can also be incorporated into more balanced weave structures.  We will play with yarn colors to find ways to get what we actually want without spending hours of trial and error.
