Introduction to Direct Warp Painting with Harrison Apple
March 19 @ 6:00 pm - May 7 @ 8:00 pm
Date: Tuesdays, March 19-May 7, 2024
Description: In this workshop, students with previous experience dressing a loom and weaving will study and replicate a demonstrated cold-water procion dye process for direct color application to warp chains prior to dressing the loom. This method of pre-dyed warp chains introduces students to the variety of tightly controlled and organically generated textile design, with the added benefit of building confidence with pre-woven design treatments such as the more technically advanced method of ikat.
Each student will complete the course of the workshop with a unique yardage of hand painted and hand woven textile.
Tuition: $265 + 60 materials fee
