« return to March, 2009

Date: Saturday, March 7, 2009

Time: 10:30am to 12:00pm

Description: Bring your problem set of beads—you know, those beads that you keep trying to figure out how in the world you can put it all together?— and we’ll explore various ways of creating new designs with them based on using some ideas found in color theories. First, we’ll look at some systematic ways of looking at color illustrated with some real-live examples from my own designs. Then, you’ll get to play with your beads! I’ll be available for coaching, if you want, or I’ll just leave you to your own devices if you would prefer. In any event, you will come away with some new ways to think about designing with color. A color wheel will be provided for you to tuck into your purse plus I’ll give you a list of resources for furthering your understanding and some exciting interactive websites for future color play. Bring your friends. You’ll have plenty of time to play and collaborate together. Besides, it’s just more fun when you work together!
