These are some samplers that Jennifer has created using her Double Rainbow technique. If you would like to see more pictures, see the Double Rainbow Yarn Collections.
Double Rainbow Workshop Description
In this workshop, you will create the ultimate color sampler! Doubleweave combined with 6 colors of yarn to get a dazzling array of color possibilities.
You will begin by winding a warp and setting up your loom according to Jennifer’s system for working with multiple colors in a rotational sequence and bringing it to the workshop. A basic two-layered structure will enable you to mix and match your colors, creating an amazing array of color mixtures. As you weave and your warp colors move past each other you will experience a visual feast of iridescence and moire patterns (Don’t know what that means? Don’t worry, you will by the end of the workshop!). You will also experiment with single-layered structures such as warp rep and warp-faced twills and the effects that they create on this versatile warp. Those using 8-shafts set up for two blocks will also be able explore an unlimited range of block combinations. This sampler will provide a remarkable education in color theory and how optical mixtures work in weaving, as well as a great source of inspiration for future weaving projects.
No prior experience in doubleweave is needed, but you must know how to warp a loom according to instructions. You will need a 4-shaft or 8-shaft table or floor loom warped according to instructions prior to the start of the class. Not suitable for Rigid Heddle weavers.

Yarn and Equipment Needed
If you need yarn for the workshop, we have the kits that Jennifer has created to go along with the class. Click here to see the kits. You are of course welcome to use whatever yarn you like for the workshop as there is no mandatory yarn selection for the class.
Lunatic Fringe Yarns is partnering with Jennifer to bring you this class. We will handle the administrative side of the workshop, and Jennifer will provide the content. When you register for the workshop, we will email you the class information, including drafts and handouts to get your loom warped and ready to weave. Any questions regarding the content of the class will be directed to Jennifer, and she can handle them just like she does her in-person workshops.
The minimum number of students in the workshops will be 14. If for some crazy reason there are not enough participants, we will refund your money prior to the first day of class.
