A Maze Of Colour

Last year at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival, this beautiful quilt by Phyllis Cameron hung front and centre on the stage of Tantramar Theatre for the Official Opening. Needless to say, it got a lot of attention. Phyllis also welcomed visitors into her home to see more of her stunning work.

This year during the 2011 Fibre Arts Festival, Phyllis is offering a class entitled "A Maze Of Colour" to share some of her expertise. Here's what the class will cover:

A Maze Of Colour: This is a full day workshop to be offered on Friday, October 14th.

One of the most intimidating aspects of quilting and other crafts is making colour decisions. It instills in us an insecurity that can take the joy out of our work and limit our creativity. To use colour effectively we need a good grasp of the basics. I agree with those who say that a systematic approach to choosing colours provides the foundation on which to build skills that give confidence to move outside our comfort zone.

During this workshop participants will learn some basic colour concepts and relationships and look at three systematic approaches to choosing colours.

All supplies for the workshop are included in the workshop fee. Participants should bring a pair of scissors and a pen/pencil.
