a workshop with Alison Gomes
We are surrounded by colour everyday.
It’s everywhere we look, in everything we eat and everything we wear.
It would be truly hard to imagine a world without colour.
Yet, when it comes to using colour, it can be a mystery!
Why do some colours work so well together while others don’t?
And how do great colour combinations happen?
In this one-and-a-half-day workshop, we will explore exactly this… and how we can use colour to great effect in our felt-making.
On the second day, we will introduce the element of stitch into our samples. Stitching is an excellent way to add colour and texture to felt. You don’t need to be a pro with a needle and thread; even the most basic stitches can be very effective. Again, just bring along your stash of threads, yarns and all things threadable, with a variety of hand-sewing needles.
We will create a range of samples, using fine merino wool, fine silk or cotton fabrics and any easily feltable bits n bobs you’ve already got. Think yarns, silk fibres, other fibres, silk hankies, old silk scarves, etc. Just bring it all!
The focus here will be on creating striking and unexpected colour combinations, in a fun, no-pressure, try-anything, wow-that-worked kind of day. All with a bit of colour theory thrown in for good measure.
By the end of the day, you will understand how to put together winning combinations.
And get ready for a colourful adventure!
