Creating Color Palettes
With Tara Faughnan
Jan 8, 1:00-3:00pm CST
This class will focus on how to create a cohesive color palette, paying particular attention to value and contrast. Neutrals, “uglies” — they all play a role!
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
This class will focus on how to create a cohesive color palette, paying particular attention to value and contrast. We will delve into color interaction, the importance of value in creating movement, and how the use of shape can tell a story.
Tara guides you through a variety of exercises to create several color palettes. Then we will discuss how to work with color in a series. Students can take any of these palettes into one or more full-size quilts!
• Rotary cutter and/or scissors
• Small acrylic ruler
• Small cutting mat
• Pencil or pen
• Notebook or several sheets of white paper
Fabrics for color exercises- the more colors you have the more you will get out of the class!
• Small scraps of solids and/or a complete Kona charm pack, or other solid charm pack. These will be used for the color exercises so size is not important. You may also use solid colored papers, or any other solid materials if you have those available.
• Bring some colors you DO NOT care for, we will be exploring how to use “ugly” colors.
• Include neutrals.
• Organize fabric/paper scraps by color for best use during the exercises.
