**Colour Blending Workshop**  Thursday 7th September 2023

In this online colour blending workshop participants can explore the wonders of colour theory and blending for tapestry weaving.  These beautiful weaving techniques allow you to create the most subtle of transitions of colour from dark to light or red to orange without any obvious line or shape. The blending technique can be used with other techniques like hatching.


Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which you can achieve colour changes. 


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.
