QUILTING 201 Exploration of Color Theory in Quilting Making
A two-day (12 hour class) 9 am to noon / 1 to 4 pm
Dates to be Announced
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: We will study color theory, including value, visual temperature, and intensity; we will learn how to use the color wheel to create great color combinations; how pattern, texture, stripes, scale, balance and unity can jazz up your quilt; next, we will look at adding luster and luminosity to your design through fabric and color selections, which will make your quilts seem as if they are glowing; we will learn how to create colorful illusions by using transparency, magic fabrics and opalescence. In class we will make up “mock-up” blocks using fabric swatches. This hand-on experience will guide you in the theories learned and ease your fears about color selection, make your quilts sing with color theory elements and help you to improve your overall quilting composition and skills. You will gain the confidence you need to never be overwhelmed by color again!
