Complicated weave structures can make magnificent weaving, but often require many harnesses to accomplish. Another way to make your weaving unusual is to dye the warp and weft with new and intriguing colors. Any warp can be dyed before being placed on the loom. If you have 2 harnesses, as in a rigid heddle loom, or 24, on a complex floor loom, your woven fabric can benefit from color application to the warp. In this one-day workshop, participants will dye warps wound ahead of class time with animal fibers such as wool, alpaca, silk, or merino, and learn several different techniques for color application. This workshop is designed for the weaving neophyte as well as the seasoned weaver -- anyone who wants to take color to a new level. No previous dyeing experience is necessary.
