COLOR IN CLOTH: THE WEAVES YOU WANT AND WHY.

This Saturday June 2 meeting of the Loom and Shuttle Guild in San Francisco will feature a presentation by Cameron Taylor-Brown, a renowned weaver in the field of color in weaving design. Color in Cloth: The Weaves You Want and Why Weave. Structures mix color in very different ways. How do we determine what weaves are “right” for what we have in mind? View images from the inspirational textile collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Cooper-Hewitt in New York, supplemented by lots of woven samples from [Taylor’s] own collection. Explore a wide range of weaving across different cultures and time periods, and examine how weave choices can dramatically affect our perception of color in cloth.

The meeting begins at 10 am at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 501 Laguna Honda Blvd.  San Francisco.

Cameron Taylor-Brown will lead a workshop immediately following the morning meeting at St. John’s.

There are a few spaces left in the workshop; cost $45. Sign up in advance for the workshop with Judith Grady: judithgrady19 at gmail.com.  She will send you the supply list.
