Workshop: Katie Pasquini Masopust  - "Color Theory"

Workshop Requirements and Supply List.

Color and texture, warm and cool, reflective and absorbing, all the properties and moods of color in fabric will be explored using actual fabric swatches to design a color wheel and color study wall hanging.  Learn to use color more freely, following what looks right to you, not what the text tell you should be.  A more emotional way to work with color.  The color swatches consist of all types of fabrics, from cottons and blends, to satins and lame’, everything!

 

Each student will bring fabrics from home to combine with each others, to create a color wheel and several color studies.
