Saturday, April 25 and Sunday April 26

Do you ever wonder why you don’t get the color results you expect in your projects? Or why that lovely hand-painted yarn doesn’t look at all the same when it’s woven or knitted? This class is geared toward fiber artists, but should help artists working in any medium take a giant step forward in learning how to deal with color in their projects. Through a series of exercises, students will learn the basics of color theory and the principles of both pigment and optical color mixing.
