Get Instant Access to Bold & Subtle Patterns

Have your beautiful colors woven into a muddy, indistinct pattern?
Then you’ll want to lean in for this…

In spite of your previous failed results...
...You inhaled, crossed your fingers, and gave it another go on the loom.

You tried picking contrasting colors.
Changing the draft.
Or maybe even using stripes.

Alas - nothing worked. Your projects still came out flat and boring, or dull and gray.

Here's the answer that will take your patterns from lost to luscious

Bold & Subtle Patterns

The 03-part mini-course designed to help you create clear motifs AND subtle, understated patterns...

You’ll finally be in control of whichever you choose.


Mind-blowingly useful and practical! I am a beginning weaver, and this course was very well designed. Anyone can understand the principles you outline thanks to the way that you break it down and give examples. I LOVE that tool you made where you pick two colors, and it shows you a draft... It's genius!! I had no idea about color value before, and it makes so much sense! I feel like my mind is blown, for the better, and I'm excited to take my weavings to the next level. Thank you, Tien, for sharing your knowledge! This is so valuable!
