Get more confident with colour selection.
This short course will help to build your colour IQ
- Part 1 will look at the basics of colour theory — not too deeply, I promise! Simple rules that you can use if you are not getting the colours quite ‘right’ in your quilts.
- Part 2 will be focusing on style or mood using colour. This section also will look at themes.
- Part 3 will be some practical examples of colour schemes.
How the course works
- scraps of fabric cut into 2 inch squares. (Note: wait for each lesson to see what scraps you need)
- a glue stick, and
- a book with blank pages or a display book to place your exercises into when you have finished them.
Colour Reference Book
To get the best value from this series on colour, I suggest that you start a workbook.
My favourite thing to do is to use an old hard-covered or spiral-bound book, and to stick my exercises in it. If you wanted to, you could decorate the pages like art journalists do. I once used an old index book with my students addresses etcetera in it. Pasted graph paper, magazine pictures over the book pages gave me fresh spaces to use.
When you have worked through all the lessons in this series on colour, you will have a great reference for later.
