This course focuses on the know-how it takes to manage multiple colors in warp and weft.
It is jam-packed with useful information that will help you design, warp, and weave with confidence.
Focusing on the "work" part of colorwork, the class starts with design and peels away the fundamental elements of colorwork, including how to read charts, tips for choosing color, identifying repeats, choices for laying out stripes, and how fabric density affects the look of your cloth.
Then it is on to warping, where the spotlight is solely on the direct warping method. Liz will introduce you to two techniques that will help you tackle a multitude of multicolored warps including a favorite of weavers, color-and-weave.
In the weaving chapter, she'll introduce a host of techniques that will help you transition between colors with ease, manage multiple shuttles, and troubleshoot common issues associated with colorwork.
The five towel patterns included with the course are designed so you can explore colorwork in a low-risk environment using easy-to-find yarns, and they can be woven to mix and match as a set.
You can order any of the towels listed below (click on towel title) as single items or order them all in our Weaving 201: Colorwork Yarn Bundle (below images). These yarn packs are for the rigid heddle loom.
