Playing With Color & Grey Scale

Instructor: Sarah Bond
Do you love bold strong colors? In exploring what is so compelling about the play of one color against another, we find much of it is in the value. The gray solids have all of the value and so retain much of the drama of interaction associated with the bright colors. This will be a color play class where we examine the relationship between color combinations and their grayscale counterparts. Students will experiment with color groups and grays to learn the power of value in color combinations and the potential of combining grays and colors in tandem. We will do a series of exercises in solid fabric with color and grayscale palettes using 6 ½ inch sampler squares, combining basic paper piecing and strip piecing techniques.
What to bring:


Sewing machine in good working order. Bring basic sewing supplies, including a rotary cutter and a small mat if you have one. I will provide large cutting stations and pressing stations. No need to bring an iron

Bring your phone. We will take pictures and play around with them a little.

If you have a chance, download Layout by Instagram. Free in the App Store and fun to play with.

For fabric, bring some solids in favorite colors, some grays and black and whites in solids and prints if you have them.  I will provide some solids in various neutral tones as well as colors to round out your supplies for the exercises.
