In this dyeing and weaving workshop, we will have lots of spontaneous fun painting warps with fiber reactive dyes, after the loom is dressed. This wonderful technique allows weavers to work with color and pattern in a loose, free, expressive way, creating large-scale abstract forms. We will paint enough warp to explore the possibilities of the technique, and for a scarf. We will learn how to mix our own colors working from primary hues. In addition to making beautiful warps and weaving, the workshop includes lectures and handouts on dye technique and safety, basic color theory, and special considerations when weaving painted warps. Students bring pre-warped table or floor looms to the workshop.
