Showcasing Upcoming CHG Workshops
Color and Weaving with Deb Essen
(an online workshop)
Section #1 September 12-13, 2020 – This section has sold out.
Because of over-whelming demand we have arranged for a second section of this workshop.
Picking the right colors in your weaving will make your textiles sing, but sometimes things don’t work out quite as we planned. Those colors looked so good together on the cones, what happened? During this two day class for rigid heddle and multi shaft looms, we deep dive into color theory and learn how to consistently create pieces that sing, create/use our own warps based on the color theory and weave samples in color and weave structures.
Chasing Rainbows shows multiple color blending and Mini Pumpkins shows how different even Zoom Loom squares can look completely different by simply changing the proportion of two colors of yarns.
If both sections of the workshop are SOLD OUT, please use the form below to be placed on the wait-list.

Focus on the Warp Kathrin Weber
Weaving Expression in Weaving With Ruth Manning
April 17-19, 2021
Enjoy learning to construct a woven face using tapestry technique; once you begin weaving it may remind you of someone you know. We will focus on a few key elements that play a part in creating expression such as choice of weft, use of the slit, and shape making using “hills and valleys”. The instructor will be providing a wide range of wefts for use in the weaving, but you may want to think about what outfit your person will be wearing. Selections of bits and pieces from your stash are bound to add pizzazz, including handspun for hair and novelty yarns for clothes. All levels can find this workshop rewarding.
Duration: 2 ½, 3 days
Experience: All levels, basic knowledge of weaving helpful
