In this paper weaving class we will explore colour theory and experiment
with different ways of applying colour to paper before weaving these
sheets together. We will learn about different weaves used in loom
weaving and apply these weaves to our paper weaving as well as
experimenting with op art and random weaving techniques and adding
texture by incorporating different material elements. At the end of the
course we can apply these techniques to a small woven vessel.
