Weaving a Color Gamp with Peggy



A Color Gamp is woven with rainbow stripes in the warp and also in the weft. The colors are arranged in rainbow progression in both. The lets you see how the colors combine to make an array of shades. Using two L-shaped white cardboard pieces as a frame to view swatches of colors will help you choose combinations for your weaving projects.

You will warp your loom for a Color Gamp; either direct or indirect warping may be used. The weave structure will be tabby (plain weave), so this is a good class for newer weavers.

See below for required materials.  There is an additional class fee for the thread used.
