The Magic of Iridescence

Fabrics that appear to change as the angle of view changes seem almost magical. They are easier to weave, and color, yarn, and structure options are less restrictive than you may think. In this class you will work with a limited range of related warp colors and 24 weft colors to create a plain-weave sampler exploring the effects of crossing different colors. You will then select two weft colors for a second sampler incorporating twills and other variations of your choice. Weave on a four shaft loom at your own pace.

$150 workshop fee.
Materials fee range from $18-$36 depending upon width of project chosen.
