Color-blending on the Loom with Deborah Jarchow
Learn the secrets for blending the colors in your weaving. Have you looked at some of the gorgeous color packs so many dyers are making and wondered how to best use them in your weaving? By using one of those color packs and the techniques you learn in this class, you can create a piece that blends the colors beautifully! Colors will be mixed in both the warp and the weft so the gradients flow together almost invisibly. This technique can provide the basis for many future exciting projects!

Note: Rigid-heddle looms provided for class use. Lab fee $10.
