Tints, Tones and Knit Two (colours) Together
Time: 9:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Lunch break from 12:30 – 1:00
Many knitters find it difficult to choose colours. This class will show you how to put colour theory into practice, so that those scary sounding terms make sense. You will look at colour temperature, tonal value, complimentary and analogous colour schemes along with many other terms. But once you get playing with colour you will see how the theory can be a helpful underpinning. In combination with the colour exercises, instruction will be given on the techniques used for working with multi colours; Stripes, Fair Isle, Instarsia, Slip Stitch etc.
Workshop Fee: $125

Materials to Bring:
part balls (a few yards each) of medium weight yarns, bring as many colours as you can and are willing to share, pair of yarn appropriate needles, squared paper coloured pencils (optional).
