Warp Painting for Weavers
1 Day Workshop with Linda Hartshorn
Thursday, August 12, 2021 in Sisters
Painted warps add a whole new dimension to your weaving, and they are so much fun to weave on! Paint a warp for your project with fiber reactive dyes. Learn how to sett a warp emphasis fabric, and how to use warp painting in combination with various weave structures. Take your painted warp home to weave!
We will be painting warps for a tencel scarf. The warps will be pre-wound
at home according to instructions. Suggestions and ideas for how to weave the project will also be given.
Materials fee: $15 for dyes, brushes, workshop notebook with recipes – paid in cash on the day of the workshop.
Students should bring: gloves, old clothes/apron, and plastic bags to put wet warps in, scissors, and a black sharpie marker. Bring 2 heavy dowels or broomsticks about 18” long and 4 ‘C’ clamps. (‘C’ clamps should be large enough to clamp on to a table.) Bring a squirt bottle with water. Suggested: bring a skein or two, or another warp, of cellulose fibers (cotton, rayon, linen, etc.) to paint as time permits.
Facilities requirements: For every two students, we’ll need two 6’ (or longer) by 30” wide tables end to end covered with plastic. I will also need a table for mixing dyes and a place to display some finished work. We will need access to a sink with hot water.
The ranch has 10 tables; we will need 5-6 more from the guild members.
Maximum participants: 15
Cost: $45 Registration will open in May. Workshop will be held outside at the Roundhouse Foundation Pine Mountain Ranch in Sisters.
