Color-blended Table Runner
With Deborah Jarchow
Oct 10, 10:00am-12:00pm & 4:00-6:00pm CDT
Learn Deborah’s secrets for blending colors in the warp and weft as you weave this stunning runner on your rigid-heddle loom.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
This is a study in weaving color! Bring 4 or 5 closely related colors of cotton yarn; we’ll learn to warp them so the shades flow together almost invisibly. You will also learn to read charts for threading your loom and to follow a weaving sequence so the colors blend through the weft as smoothly.
Weave a beautiful runner and discover new ways to play with color.
Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Need some experience warping the loom.
• Mercerized, worsted-weight cotton yarn in 4–5 colors, 100 yds each; yarn should be at least 2-ply, strong, and not hairy or bumpy
• Tapestry needle
• Cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll
• 2 brown paper grocery bags
• Rigid-heddle loom with at least 10” weaving width
• 7.5- or 8-dent reed, and weaving tools (sley/threading hook, clamps, warping peg, shuttle – you may want to have 4–5 shuttles or bobbins).
• 10–15 yards waste yarn (acrylic worsted yarn works best)
