ABOUT SARAH JACKSON: An early interest in art and textiles led me to the University of Kansas where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with emphasis in textile design. I started weaving again in 2005 after twenty year hiatus. Some of the things I did during that time include working for a publishing company designing and writing pattern instruction for knitwear, quilting, home schooling my son. I am passionate about weaving (everyday, if possible!), color, and texture. When not weaving, I enjoy reading, gardening, and bike riding.

MORNING PROGRAM January 13: Color Confidence – An exploration of the numerous possibilities for successfully translating color into woven cloth. Mixing yarn doesn't work like mixing paint and we’re often surprised by color effects in woven cloth.

3-DAY WORKSHOP January 13, 1-4; January 14/15, 9-4: Color is one of the most exciting components of weaving, and… learning to use colors confidently can be challenging. In these workshops, participants will explore fresh ideas for developing color studies, learn how various weave structures impact color interaction, and understand how to effectively translate color combinations into woven cloth. This workshop is a combination of presentation, discussion, and weaving; it is not a round robin workshop. You will complete the workshop with a greater understanding of how colors interact in woven cloth, how to sample effectively, how to evaluate ideas for cloth using their sample color combinations and with greater confidence in your own creativity.


WORKSHOP FEE: $125 for full SCHG members: $175 for nonmembers and subscribers.
