Choose Colour! This is a playful class where we will experiment with colour and texture to create colourful working swatches on Sunday 13th October 2019, 10 am to 1 pm.
After the class, students can use these swatches as reference points for their next multi-coloured project.
Beginning with some colour theory, we will explore different colour combinations through the use of striping, textured stitches, lace patterning, fading and more. We will also experiment with holding yarns double to create marled effects and try out combinations of speckled and variegated yarns.
