Colour Your World
Level: All levels
1 day class
Do you want to learn more about colour? Would you like to learn new ways to select colours and fabrics for great new quilts?
You will start with the basics of how a colour wheel works and how you can usefully use it. You will look at a number of quilts, fabrics and samples as examples to explain this process. You will then complete a series of interactive, easy to follow, hands-on exercises using this knowledge to build up colour boards you can use in the future as references.
Next, using a set of coloured fabric chips, you will work thru a series of exercises on how to build portfolios of colour to use in possible future quilts. During this process you will learn more about value, contrast, highlights, and colour blending. Lastly, you will have lots of fun developing great potential colour schemes for your own future quilts, using samples of your own fabrics.
