On Saturday March 18, the Guild will present a Color Gamp Workshop at the Huntsville Main Library Auditorium. Explore color possibilities by weaving a color gamp. Learn about color theory and experiment by weaving with different color combinations. Learn which color combinations provide iridescent effects. Weavers can use a rigid heddle or multi-shaft loom to weave their color gamp. No experience is necessary. Register by March 10th if you plan to attend. See attached flyer for more info. gampflyer
