You need a retreat! You need to come to Color Camp! The no-sew workshop consists of cut-and-paste color exercises, that focus on value (light and dark), temperature (warm and cool), and intensity (bright and dull). These characteristics, more than color itself, determine the impact of a quilt or garment. An overview of the color wheel shows quilters how to use this invaluable tool to build a color scheme from scratch, or to fix one that doesn't work. The final exercises explores the effects of light and warmth coming from behind the quilt surface. It's lots of creative fun, and you'll leave "Color Camp" with fresh ideas for working with color. Christine will present a mini trunk show of her garments and quilts to show you how she applies color basics to her work. Instructor: Christine Barnes ($60) Like us on Facebook!!
