FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION: PAINTING WARPS ON LOOM
3 Days $385
Saturday – Monday, February 17–19, 10am – 4:30pm
Sarah Saulson, instructor
In this dyeing and weaving workshop, we will have lots of spontaneous fun painting warps with fiber reactive dyes, after the loom is warped. This wonderful technique allows weavers to work with color and pattern in a loose, free, expressive way, creating large-scale abstract forms. We will paint enough warp to explore the possibilities of the technique, and for 1 or 2 scarves. We will learn how to mix our own colors working from six primary hues. The workshop is primarily hands-on, but includes lectures and handouts on dye technique and safety, basic color theory, and special considerations when weaving painted warps.
USE OF A PORTABLE 4 SHAFT LOOM REQUIRED. STUDENTS SHOULD BE CONFIDENT WITH WARPING THE LOOM AND HAVE A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF 4 SHAFT WEAVING.

Sarah Saulson has been weaving since she was 8 years old. She teaches Weaving at the School of Art at Syracuse University. A professional weaver, she is known for her beautiful prayer shawls that she weaves on her computerized dobby loom. She writes for Handwoven and teaches at conferences and guilds around the country. See her work at sarahsaulson.com.
