Color Class at WEBS in Northampton Mass.
August 15, 2017
Standard theories of color, proven over time, are essential in understanding how to color-balance any project. Whether it’s knitting, crochet, or weaving, color selection can sometimes be a challenge. Using dyes, water color pencils, and charcoal, students will mix color and discover ways to alter how it is perceived. We’ll explore color work patterns and gather yarns to discuss how to implement your color choices. At the end of this one-day workshop, you’ll be able to identify a color and it’s relatives, mix colors and make subtle changes, and put colors together pleasingly for any project.
Dye a Silk Scarf at a Benefit for the Children’s Advocacy Center.
On August 24, 2017 I will show you how much fun it is to dye a silk scarf. Last January we had a group come to the Center for a dyeing party and it was such a great success, that we are repeating this event. Details will follow.
Elegant Silk Cowl Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer.
The silk is dyed in small batches, making each one unique. The circumference is large enough to surround the neck either once or twice. Also know as an infinity scarf, these cowls are light weight, yet warm and comforting. They sit nicely under a blouse for an extra touch of warmth and color without any weight.
Avaiable in 5 Colors – Sienna, Persimmon, Hyacinth, Sky and Mossy Rock. See the picture in the gallery images. Indi cate your color preference in the comment section when checking out.
