Color Lab for Beginning Weavers
Color is one of the major tools every weaver has at their disposal. Part science and part intuition, it can be very intimidating selecting the right combination of colors to achieve your desired result. This workshop will focus on selecting colors for the warp and weft, along with lots of discussion on how the eye will blend them together. By the time students complete the class, they will have a better understanding of how to manage color in their weaving projects. Students will have the opportunity to try their hand at multiple different projects in order to experiment with manipulating color. This workshop is designed specifically for beginning weavers, but anyone curious about color is welcome to attend!

Chris Acton - Teaching Experience
With an elementary school teacher and a college professor for parents, Chris naturally fell into teaching. Throughout her career as a weaver, she’s taught in both 1-on-1 and group settings. Her true passion is working with beginners. The ultimate goal is breaking down the process of weaving on a multi-shaft loom into small, bite-sized pieces - easy enough that all her students feel like they can do it. On any given week, you can find her instructional videos and livestreams on social media, which are always packed with helpful tidbits and lots of encouragement.
