Sagacious Sumptuous Intentional Color: Tile Bracelet Inspired by Nature
During this class you will –
Expand your color awareness
Refresh your knowledge about color
Perfect your skills when combining colors
The glorious range of softer muted colors found in nature will provide the inspirational starting point while you learn how to create an intentional, impactful color scheme. Five useful strategies to enhance harmony will be presented as you prepare a set of colors destined to become a collaged tile bracelet or a series of brooches.
Lindly will share her tips for creating stripe blend sheets that are appropriately scaled for making smaller pieces. The importance of including dramatic value contrasts; accent colors and neutrals in your nature inspired color scheme will be emphasized. There will be dozens of illustrative color samples on display and plenty of time for individual attention while you make your color choices.
Once you have prepared your blend sheets, you will learn how to make eight different color coordinated patterns: including soft Ikat, stripes, fractured color blocking, fabric inspired stripes, feathered stripes, and a small scale circular mokume gane. Lindly will then demonstrate how to sequence and audition your elements to create a successful harmonious balance in your design while using multiple patterns.
At the end of the session we will brainstorm as a group on how to incorporate what you have learned in your future projects.
