About the course
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.
We will cover:
Yarns that are easy to use and yarns that take more effort and yarns to avoid
I will show a couple of methods of winding the warp
We will see how to choose the best weft to enhance the warp
We will see some great structures to weave the warp
some ways to avoid problem warps
