Exercises & Inspiration for the Color Challenged with Daryl Lancaster
Through a series of creative exercises, participants will learn to confidently place yarns of different colors and textures together to make beautiful warp combinations. Participants will then experiment designing warps based on mood using photos for inspiration and see illustrations of how to translate them into handwoven fabrics and ultimately something wearable.
