Have you ever had a warp you loved but were disappointed when you finished weaving it?

Weavers have a unique challenge when it comes to colors. Because of the optical blending caused by the warp and weft, you have to consider how the warp and weft colors interact with each other when you are planning a project or deciding on the weft color(s).

In this class, you will learn basic color theory with a slide presentation and have a chance to try out various color combinations on your loom. Come play with colors!

100% wonderful

This was one of the most worthwhile classes I've taken in a while. The teacher was informative and very helpful. You should have her teach this again.

Great for weavers of any skill level

Ms. Oki is a talented weaver, and for her to share her skill and insight was a wonderful experience. Her examples of how colors work together was awesome! Many examples were shared visual and physical for the students to view and touch.
