This summer school is aimed at those who have a passion for mixing yarn to create subtle and beautiful surfaces. Learn how to overlay which allows the weaver to 'paint' with yarn, creating nuanced mark-making with visual intensity. Expect to produce three samplers working with tonal, harmonic and dissonant colour, then explore one in greater depth while weaving a theme of your own choice.
