The Handweavers Guild of Boulder presents a Shimmering Iridescent Scarves Workshop with Bobbie Irwin
Using open double weave on four or six shafts, you can weave scarves that glow throughout with four colors. This magical, color-shifting fabric might be the ultimate example of iridescence, incorporating both light reflection and light transmission through the layers! Your warp will be enough to weave two short cowl scarves, each weighing less than an ounce. At the same time, you will be learning about factors that influence and enhance iridescence, for later reference.
Experience: advanced beginner (basic skills and familiarity with the equipment) to intermediate or beyond; no prior experience with double weave needed
Class Size: maximum of 12
Equipment/Materials Provided by Participants: 4- or 8-shaft loom (no rigid heddle looms), prewarped with two colors of 20/2 mercerized cotton, with a weaving width of at least nine inches; standard tools, including two shuttles, tapestry (blunt) needle, bobbin winder (can be shared), two or more terrycloth towels to help stabilize the open-weave fabric. Yarn, color, and warping specifications will be provided in advance.
Materials Fee: none
Wearing masks for CVD mitigation will be decided by the workshop teacher in conjunction with all state and local laws and regulations. Even if not required, the workshop leader may mandate mask wearing at all times.
Cancellation/Refund policy: Workshop fees are payable to HGB and due with the registration form. Refunds are made only if another or (wait list) person can fill your space.
