Weave Your Own Color Gamp Class

Registration Currently Closed

What is a color gamp? A color gamp is a color study, especially important to weavers! Because with each project, a weaver needs to select 2 sets of colors (warp and weft). A color gamp will showcase the unique results that occur when 2 color merge in a weaving project. 

Typically it looks like a grid of colorful square that would look beautiful hanging on any wall. But when you look closer, a color gamp will give you a wealth of information about how to use color as a powerful tool in your weaving. 

Course Overview

What is included in the Weave Your Own Color Gamp Class? Each student will receive a set of 5 videos explaining the world of color gamps and how to create your own. In addition, a copy of Chris’s color gamp project plan, and a list of yarns are included. 

How will this class help me? Color is tricky for weavers. There are so many variables included in a weaving project that it can be very hard to anticipate what the final fabric will look like.

The Weave Your Own Color Gamp Class will give you the details needed to weave a color gamp of your own – which, in turn, will give you a reference point for how color interact with each other. The more you experiment with color, the more confident you will become. A color gamp is a perfect place to begin!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! A color gamp is a very straightforward project that is appropriate for beginners.

Yes! Matter of fact, that is the exact loom I used for the project.

Yes, you can! The bulk of the project will translate beautifully to a rigid heddle. The only portion of the project that may be difficult to recreate will be the twill portion. But, simply insert something you would like to see there instead. (There are no rules!) 

I suggest a loom, a shuttle, and any random yarns you have available. 
If for any reason this class does not meet your expectations, please reach out to me at chris@actoncreative.net. My goal is to always provide an outstanding experience to my students. But if for some reason the class is not what you were expecting, I will provide a 100% refund within 15 days of purchase.
Because there are many ways to dress a loom, I do not include any specifics. I provide dimensions for setting up the project (ex. warp length, width, and sett), plus details on how to actually weave your color gamp. 

Over, Under, Over, Under will not go through the process of setting up a loom. It won’t discuss any other weaving patterns besides plain weave. And it won’t get technical with the inner workings of a loom. If you are looking for something that isn’t included in the class, I encourage you to skip this class. And if you are feeling inspired, send me a note letting me know what you’re interested in. I’m always brainstorming the next class.

You will have access for a full year.

You are welcome to reach out to me at chris@actoncreative.net at any time. Each student will receive a personalized message from me each week for 3 weeks, following up with you and checking on your progress. My goal is for each student to not only finish the class, but implement the various techniques. So I’ll be stopping in to say “hi” to everyone along the way. Also, I am live on Facebook every Thursday morning at 9:30 CST for Live At The Loom. You are invited to toss me any questions there, as well.

Yes! Over, Under, Over, Under will definitely be available for purchase in 2021. However, because I strive to improve the class each time I release it, it is very likely that the price will increase with future iterations.

Celebrate!! Finishing anything is a big accomplishment. But I would LOVE to see your final projects once you’ve completed them. Send images to me at chris@actoncreative.net. I have big plans to brag all about my students on the website and social media. I can’t wait!
