Description

This workshop focuses on the use of colour in weaving. The multiple taqueté weave structures will be used to produce different shades according to the weft threads provided by the participants. Each participant will need to bring a photo of a work of a famous painter, as well as weft threads representing or inspired by the colours found in the painting. Table looms of 8 or more harnesses will already be threaded according to the information provided by the teacher. Each participant will be able to weave different colour samples on other participants’ looms.

What to bring

  • A table loom with 8 harnesses or more
  • An image of a famous painter
  • Threads of colours inspired by the chosen artwork
  • The participants will receive in advance more precise information, especially regarding the preparation of their loom.
