Course Details

Join me in the beautiful setting of the Sussex Prairie Gardens, to have fun learning how a colour wheel works and make some relaxing hand stitched samples to test out the principles. Many people I've taught over the years, have said to me that they don't understand how to put colours together. But the good news is, you can learn how to help choose an effective colour scheme for your embroideries, quilts or other textile art projects, with an awareness of the simple principles of colour theory. This is a unique workshop aimed purely at those working with textiles. Gain confidence in understanding how different colours work together to create lively contrasts or pleasing harmonies and how adding dark or light can alter how colours appear. We'll think about how colour conveys atmosphere and expression and we'll work on simple stitched colour "mood boards". You will leave with new ideas, a greater understanding of how to interpret colour in your work and a series of inspiring colour swatches for use in your future projects. With the gorgeous colours of the Prairie Gardens as our backdrop, join me for this fun and informative workshop. Suitable for complete beginners, or those who'd like a "refresher" to breathe new life into their work. Price includes tea, coffee and homemade biscuits, plus all day entry to the gardens.
