Event description
Weave a Double Rainbow
2 Layers, 4 Shafts, 6 Colors – Infinite Possibilities
Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9, 9am–4pm (both days)
Instructor: Jennifer Moore
$258 WGGC members / $283 non-members 
Fee includes the workshop, lodging, and 4 meals at the Transfiguration Spirituality Center (details below)
$15 Materials Fee
Experience Level: Intermediate. No prior experience with doubleweave is required, but students must be able to warp a 4 or 8-shaft loom.
Workshop Limit: 20
Chair: Melissa Lusk
This is perhaps the ultimate color sampler! You will begin by winding a warp and setting up your loom according to Jennifer's system for working with multiple colors in a rotational sequence and bringing it to the workshop. A basic two-layered structure will enable you to mix and match your colors, creating an amazing array of color mixtures. As you weave and your warp colors move past each other, you will experience a visual feast of iridescence and moiré patterns. 
We will also experiment with single-layered structures such as warp rep and warp-faced twills and the effects that they create on this versatile warp. Those set up for two blocks on eight shafts will also be able to explore an unlimited range of block combinations.
This sampler will provide a remarkable education in color theory and how optical mixtures work in weaving, as well as serve as a great source of inspiration for future weaving projects.
                                                              
This workshop/retreat will be held at the Transfiguration Spirituality Center in the northern Cincinnati suburb of Glendale, Ohio. Workshop participants will stay at the Center on Friday night, in a single room with private bathroom and including four meals: lunch and dinner on May 8, breakfast and lunch on May 9. Please indicate if you would like vegetarian meals or have any other dietary requests. Breakfast is from 7am to 9am, lunch at 12:30pm, and dinner at 6pm.
