In this online colour blending with complimentary colours workshop participants can explore the what and how of weaving with complimentary colours. Blending is a way of placing a combination of wool threads together in one mix and weaving with that blend. However which colours work
well together and how do you introduce orange to blue or yellow to purple? These are the types of questions and many more that we will try to answer in this practical workshop. The tutor will both explain, and demonstrate the correct approach to this type of weaving.
You can weave along with the tutor but you may prefer to watch, take notes and then weave along with the video afterwards. This will depend on your ability as a weaver and your preference.
There will be plenty of time to ask questions so please be ready to ask when prompted.
If you are studying blending it is best to start with our Colour Blending Workshop, which explains how to start this technique and deals with the colour wheel in general.
What should you expect?
This will be an informal discussion and demonstration about a specific technique. The workshops will be videoed and the video will be available for 7 days after the workshop. Handouts will be sent ahead of the course and can be downloaded with the purchase of the workshop. This class will take place via Zoom.
