Who would have thought that weaving was the catalyst for one of the biggest color discoveries of the 19th century. It all began with weaving at the Gobelins Tapestry Factory in Paris. It was here that a scientist and director studied color contrasts. This study would change general perception of color in the world forever.
In this one day class we will playfully explore a wide variety of unique color combinations by weaving with colorful paper strips to create many small samples.
Did you ever wonder why two beautiful thread colors suddenly become un-attractive when woven together? Find out the answer to this question and more in this class.
This is a class for any level of learner, weavers or anyone who likes to work with color.
