In the back of my mind I knew I wanted to come back as a teacher. I submitted my "Simply Color" class and it was accepted. I had a great time this weekend teaching one of my favorite subjects, color theory. The class is geared towards the fiber arts because, well, that's what I do. So here is a few shots of my class.
After my lecture, students traveled to different mini-stations to experiment with color.
|Using hand combs to blend dyed fibers to experiment with color combinations|
|Looking at color swatches through a kaleidoscope, one of my favorite things to do.|
|Color drafting patterns to test combinations. This is really good for color-way knits such as Intarsia and Fair Isle|
|Another view of color blending|
|What can I say, I'm a teacher, I usually have something to say-and hopefully it is|
|Using watercolors to practice how to mix colors to achieve desired results-good practice for future hand dying projects.|
| Anyone who knows me knows that I love nail polish and nail design. This was my design for my color theory class.|
It's not exactly analogous, probably closer to monochromatic.
To top it off, my daughter Michelle took a day off from her very busy life and attended the event with me. This made it all the more special. She took a rug hooking class and enjoyed it very much.
It will be awhile again until I post on the Journal. I am still working on my Counterpane scarf/shawl and need to work on a dye combination before I can call it done.
