Color Your Quilt Beautiful: Essentials and Guidance for Quilters

Are you apprehensive when it comes to working with color? In this class, students will learn basic principles of color and design, especially as they relate to fabrics and quilting. We will cover and explore the different types of contrasts, juxtaposition of colors, color symbolism, mood, and some basic rules of design. The rest of the class will be hands-on and devoted to experimenting with color, obtaining contrasts and balance and interactive discussions and problem solving. Students are given the freedom, encouragement and self-confidence to play and open their minds to the joy of color.
