advance!

TUTOR: Bonnie Inouye

Explore a nifty technique for producing long but easily remembered sequences. Blocks and curves can advance or descend, providing as many blocks as there are shafts on the loom. Explore advancing twills, network drafted sequences, crackle and echo weaves.

COLOUR & DESIGN

TUTOR: BOBBIE KOCIEJOWSKI
October 2009

The aim of this course will be to enable the student to better determine colour choices through an increased understanding of colour theory and how colours relate to one another, especially in the unique interaction of warp and weft.

Through a series of exercises on paper, wraps and weaving on the loom, students will have the opportunity to put into practice various aspects of colour interaction in relation to weaving; creating a third colour through optical mixing; knocking colours back by the use of neutrals; discovering why colour value is so important and how to use pure hue colour to create colour movement. If the workshop is a three day workshop students will be able to dress their looms with warps based on their own colour source.

Non-members £130, associate members £117, full members £97.50.
