There can be variances in colors and hues, differences in the temperature or feel of a piece, all based off of the color of the work. The way your eye moves, or is forced to move, through a piece can be directly linked to the use of color. This element of design can be seen as either bold or subtle, make up the whole piece or provide pops of color. Materials can be woven together to not only combine various elements or introduce a detail, but they can also be used to direct the eye. This overarching description of woven can also be simplified to the direct interlacing of materials, something that is commonly used to create fabric itself. Beyond Material: Woven Values explores color and how it is used as a design element within textile work. Whether it's used to create movement through lines of red plastic, highlight hand-stitched circles, or provide a base color for gradients of blue jean strips; color can be an important aspect of a piece.
