October Meeting - Stripes
WWG 2018-19 Stripe Challenge
Create a personal stripe design with 3-7 colors, using any kind of weaving technique that you choose.
In order to bring self-expression into the stripe design, one of the colors you select should be representative of you.
Questions you might ask are: How does this color relate to the other colors? Is it similar or very different? Is it dominant in the pattern or more subdued? PLEASE KEEP THE COLOR REPRESENTING YOU A SECRET, WE WILL TRY TO GUESS WHEN THE CHALLENGES ARE REVEALED.
Your design may be purely intuitive or employ techniques that are more structured, such as the Fibonacci sequence.
For an extra challenge, you may consider creating a second color way, keeping the color representing you the same.
Your challenge piece will be due at the May meeting.
