Program: Tien Chiu  Showcasing Painted Warps

Showcasing Painted Warps

People often find color in weaving to be so complicated that it feels downright mystical. But its not. Color in weaving follows rules, and once you understand the underlying rules, you can design beautiful work.  Painted warps are beautiful. But they can be difficult to design with. Painted-warp colors can change radically when woven, depending on your weft yarn colors and your choice of design. This program explains the basics of how color works in weaving and then covers how to choose weft, weave structure, and sett to showcase the colors of your painted warp either by preserving the original colors or by blending them with a carefully chosen weft color to bring out their beauty.

 Tien Chiu is an expert on color in weaving. Her work has been exhibited in museums and featured on the cover of Handwoven, and she has taught over 10,000 students in her online classes. She has woven hundreds of handwoven fabric swatches and dyed over 2,500 yarn samples in a quest to understand color. 

 Tien is the author of Master Your Craft: Strategies for Designing, Making, and Selling Artisan Work. She is a former President of the Board at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. She teaches about color in weaving at www.warpandweave.com (www.warpandweave.com) (http://www.warpandweave.com/).
