Weaving a painted warp is a fascinating experience in the use and mixing of color and pattern as well as study of interaction between warp and weft color, yarn weight, and weave structure. Learn how to prepare warp for painting, mix paints, then paint two tencel warps with Procion fiber-reactive dyes (one warp you’ll weave here, the other you’ll take home). When your warp is dry you’ll dress a loom, choose weft yarn to complement it, and weave your vibrantly-colored scarf, a unique work of woven art. 4- and 8-harness looms and weaving accessories provided.
Lynn Novotnak first learned to weave at Sievers more than 20 years ago. Since retiring in 2013 from her day job as a lawyer, she has followed her heart, and her avocation has become her vocation. Lynn is the 2019-2021 President of the Wisconsin Handweavers, Inc. (WHI). She has won several first place awards at Loominosity, WHI’s annual show, and has taught warp painting through WHI. When not weaving, Lynn knits obsessively for her grandson.
