The workshop was taught by Ruth Issett who is well known for her colour expertise. The first process of the day was to dye 9 main colours. Ruth had chosen Antique Gold, Golden, Lemon, Magenta, Carmine Red, Scarlet, Medium Blue, Cerulean Blue and Turquoise.
Here are all my fabrics, dried and ironed. (Yes! I picked up an iron!)
The second process involved choosing 2 colours which we mixed in 3 different proportions to create a family of colour. Here are mine drying overnight.
And altogether before ironing. Yes I ironed these as well.
Two of the colour families followed on from each other.
I love this bundle of threads that frayed from the fabrics.
These are all the little bits I cut of each strip I stuck into my sketchbook.
I used some of the little bits to make these colour collages which need to be stitched.
The two days were fantastic. I learned such a lot.
Thank you Becca for organising the workshop. And thanks to Ruth for her excellent teaching.
Thanks for stopping by.
