This class will introduce new weavers to the logistics of planning and preparing a pooled warp project on a rigid heddle loom. Many variegated be they commercial or hand dyed, have repeating color sequences that can be taken advantage of by a weaver. Learn which kind of yarns and dye processes lead to repeating color sequences, and which may not give the results you want. Learn how to determine if a given yarn will work the way you want and access its color sequences for project planning. Students will complete class by planning and actually measuring the warp for a pooled warp project of their choice. Students may use the Direct Warping method or Indirect Warping.
Prerequisites: Prior completion of Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving or the ability to warp a loom independently. Completion of 2 or more weaving projects on your own is advised for beginners taking this class.
Equipment: This class is intended for students with their own rigid heddle loom. Please read the full class description for information regarding types of looms and Materials (yarn) needed for this class.
