Now we start our little escapade into the world of colour and design. It is a system that I have developed after years of production work and I have seen it empower hundreds of students.
When students do this workshop in house, the first morning is spent taking a good look at sett. We started exploring this last year in Episode 4 and we pick up where we left off last year. That means…. you really should re-watch Season 1 Episode 4 so it all flows seamlessly. You can print out an extra copy of the pdf “your own sett chart” so you can keep records on sett from the get go.
This entire year we will be working with 7 warps that all start at 18 EPI but I change the sett throughout, so it is important that we talk about sett even further to lay our foundation. I provide all the technical information you need to do this on your own looms.
I do encourage you to clean up your stash of 2/8 cotton. You will need 1 cone each of Black, Light Grey, Dark Grey, White and Red, for the first sample which is released with Season 2 Episode 2. We have also put together a kit for this warp and it’s ready to for purchase: Online Guild Sample Kit #1 – Asymmetry.
You can download the first section of the workshop in pdf form with this episode. It is a good idea to do this before you start watching.
There will be a new topic opened on the Forum for you to post your thoughts.
