Learn how to be more creative by looking at the honeybee. In this lecture you’ll get inspiration for your quilts from a variety of unexpected sources. Lessons learned from outside the quilting world can help you with color, design and composition.
The Role of Color in Your Quilts
Saturday, February 22, 9:30AM-4:30PM
Rolling Meadows Library
We will look at a variety of quilts and analyze art, sculpture, architecture, gardens, and images of daily life to better understand the role of color in design. Through individual and group color explorations, you will develop analytical methods for using color with confidence. You will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the role of color in your quilts and with a renewed excitement about making quilts.
Participants will sew a small, abstract color “portrait” during the second half of the class.
