Program and Events - Kathrin Webber - Effective Use of Materials & Colour

Do you have yarn in various colors, textures, weights, yarn types that you are not sure what to do with? Perhaps you have a lovely yarn that may not be strong enough for that warp you want to wind. Or your yarn is too fine or too big or the colors are too bright and they don't go together. Or, to be honest, the yarn you have been hoarding is just too dang expensive to use! How do you make a little go a long way?

This lecture with images will help you think of creative ways to plan and execute woven projects of mixed yarn types and colors that you might have thought would never go together technically or visually. Spend a little time with me thinking, "What if…?" And then dig through your yarn closet for hidden treasures waiting to be woven.
