Jennifer Moore Double Rainbow Workshop
Zoom, Sept. 2021
2 layers, 4 or 8 shafts, 6 colors = Endless Possibilities
This is perhaps the ultimate color sampler! You will begin by winding a warp and setting up your loom according to Jennifer’s system for working with multiple colors in a rotational sequence and bringing it to the workshop. A basic two-layered structure will enable you to mix and match your colors, creating an amazing array of color mixtures. As you weave and your warp colors move past each other you will experience a visual feast of iridescence and moire patterns. We will also experiment with single-layered structures such as warp rep and warp-faced twills and the effects that they create on this versatile warp. Those set up for two blocks on eight shafts will also be able explore an unlimited range of block combinations. This sampler will provide a remarkable education in color theory and how optical mixtures work in weaving, as well as a great source of inspiration for future weaving projects.
4-shaft sampler 8-shaft, 2-block sampler
Level – No prior experience in doubleweave is needed, but students must know how to warp a loom according to instructions. Students will prepare a 4-shaft or 8-shaft table or floor loom warped according to instructions. Material fee – None, pdfs will be emailed. Maximum – 20 students
Cost – $95, guild members, $120 non-members
Registration will begin in May – Jennifer says: Four sessions of 3 1/2 to 4 hours each spaced a couple days apart is working out very well with how the topics are presented. I am sending out pre-workshop materials a couple months ahead that include a couple videos on how to wind the warp and set up the loom. The week before the workshop starts I send out pdf files for the class notebook for people to print out and compile. Each zoom session is a mix of face-to-face time for questions and conversation, lessons by Powerpoint and recorded loom demonstrations, with time to weave and try out what they have learned.
Workshop Schedule – Tues. Sept. 7, Thurs. Sept. 9, Sat. Sept. 11, Mon. Sept. 13
Zoom sessions 9 AM ~1 PM each day. All sessions will be recorded and available for 2 weeks following the workshop.
