Weaving Colour

26th October 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Having a warp and weft opens up lots of exciting possibilities for colour combinations but
can also feel a bit overwhelming at times.
This workshop is deigned for those who would like to feel more confident about using
colour within their work, or maybe those wanting to experiment away from colour palettes
they frequently use within their work.

During this workshop we will think about colour,
through creating some design boards, yarn wraps and some small woven samples.

Please note we will not be using the dobby looms during this sessions, but rather focusing
on creating small samples using frame and table looms to allow us to concentrate on our
theme of looking at how colour can be used effectively within your weaving.

Things to bring

Yourselves, ideas , a packed lunch (there are also places to buy lunch in the mill and on Farsley Town Street.)

We will provide

Refreshments (drinks and cake!), all materials and equipment.
