Faux Ikat – How I use Variegated Yarns When Weaving

Original price was: $97.00.Current price is: $58.20.

This class will cover my favorite ways to use variegated or spaced dyed or hand painted yarns. I like to control the “pooling” with in the way I wind the warp and also by manipulating the war as it is wound on. These “faux ikat” warps an be used on Rigid Heddle or Shaft Looms and I will be demonstrating both.
