The class begins with an introduction to basic artistic color theory, then reveals how to streamline and focus certain aspects of color theory to generate interesting, naturally inspired palettes. Attendees will use the Harrisville Shetland and Highland’s extensive color range to realize these color combinations and will create, then take home, their own set of color cards using this method. Students will also learn about the Hudson Valley art movement, a heavily influential and local American landscape painting movement, and follow with studies on current local painters who have continued to draw on inspiration from the region. Depending on student interest and the weather, we may take a local art oriented field trip one of the afternoons.
Armed with their own color sets, attendees will then learn how to evaluate imagery and inspiration of their own, and with provided materials, to decipher and develop pleasing color combinations that they can then use in weavings, embroideries, knitting and crochet projects, felted fabrics, and more.
The workshop has peg looms, floor looms, and a variety of knitting needles on hand, but it is always good to bring your own hooks, needles, or other preferred supplies if you are able.
Skill level: All levels
