Sarah Jackson, the weaving editor of Handwoven magazine, will be presenting a color focused program and workshop on May 3, 4, and 5, 2017.

Lecture: May 3, 2017 at 11:00 AM: One Thread at a Time; A Weaver's Journey is a multi-media program which includes a slide presentation and fashion show of handwoven garments. Designed to educate, inspire, and entertain this program will be held at the Luther Burbank Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA. Non RGFA Guild members are welcome to attend this lecture.

Workshop: Color Confidence. Color is one of the most exciting components of weaving, and learning to use colors confidently can be challenging. Mixing yarn colors doesn't work like mixing colors with paint, and even experienced professionals with in-depth color knowledge are often surprised by color effects in woven cloth. In these workshops, participants will explore fresh ideas for developing color studies, learn how various weave structures impact color interaction, and understand how to effectively translate color combinations into woven cloth.

May 3, 2017 from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM. This workshop will be held immediately after the Guild's general meeting at the Luther Burbank Garden Center 2050 Yulupa Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA. This three hour workshop is tailored to meet the color needs of both weavers and non weavers. Participants will explore the numerous possibilities for successfully translating color into spinning, knitting, quilting, felting and weaving projects. RGFA Guild members $35; Non RGFA Guild members $45. There is a material fee of $15.

May 4, and 5, 2017 — 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM held at the Cotati Community Center, 201 West Sierra Ave, Copeland Room, Cotati, CA. This workshop is a two day continuation of the Color Confidence workshop started on May 3rd.

Cost for RGFA Guild members $120 (this includes payment for the half-day workshop on May 3rd). Cost for non RGFA Guild members $130 (this includes payment for the half-day workshop on May 3rd). There is a separate $40 fee for warp which will be prepared by Sarah.
