Instructor: Deb Essen
Location: Virtual Workshop via Zoom Teleconference
Dates: September 26-27, 2020
Days: Saturday, Sunday
Times: 10am – 7pm, with breaks off the teleconference call. Students will be able to email Deb with questions when we are not in the teleconference.
This two-day workshop is an introduction to color theory for weavers and fiber artists. We discuss color theory, working with different color combinations and how color value effects your projects from knitting to spinning to weaving. It includes discussions of color interactions and using inspirations to create color combinations in weaving. The student will weave samples in color combinations based on the student's color inspiration in different weave structures in one warp.
The class is suitable for rigid heddle, table or floor loom students who are advanced beginners through advanced experienced weavers.
This workshop will be offered via Zoom (online teleconference). Students must be able to independently warp their looms. A Color wheel is not required, but a good tool to have in your weaving tool-box. Before the workshop students need to pick a photo for color inspiration for the yarn colors to be used in their sample. Select 4-6 colors out of the inspiration picture for your yarn colors. When checking your yarn stash, you can use any fiber content or size of yarn that you have enough of for sampling. Details for winding the warp will be emailed to students about a month before the workshop so looms can be prepped before the workshop starts. A detailed plan for the two days will be provided after registration
Deb Essen has been weaving for over 25 years and teaches at local, regional and national conferences, guilds and shops. She was last at CHG a Spring 2019 Workshop on Weaving with Supplemental Warps. Her program on Color the evening before the workshop was so well received that we have asked her to do her two day workshop on Weaving with Color.
