Understanding Colour – Making Confident Decisions

Colour

Teacher: Stella Lange
Suitable for: Any knitter or crocheter

Colour, one of the mysteries of the universe! Some people seem to have a natural colour sense and easily combine colours in ways that work but some of us don’t posses such confidence. This workshop introduces key concepts of colour theory through play and experimentation. Participants are asked to bring a selection yarns from their typical colour palette and to use these to explore combinations that enhance their favourite colours.  Using tricks like borrowing from nature, from classical art or from the everyday – the outcome will be a better sense of what works, why it works and how to select effective colour combinations.
