COLOR AND WEAVE EFFECT

Color and weave effect describes an infinite number of patterns which can be created by repeating a small pattern of light and dark colors in the warp and wefts using a basic weave structure.  The visual patterns formed do not resemble the weave structure and cannot be predicted without a color draft.  This presentation will explore the general characteristics of color and weave effect by looking at samplers, drafts, and reviewing color drafting. A 50+ page learning packet with notes, drafts, and project ideas will be available to each participant for a fee.  

Bring:  pencil, eraser, ruler, colored pencils
