March 3 at 11:00 AM, during the guild meeting
Non-guild members are welcome
Online Zoom meeting

Why do those colors look so nice together on the cones or skeins or fiber, but when you start winding the warp, weaving, knitting, or felting things don’t look nearly as pretty. Likely it’s because of the color values. This presentation is an introduction to color theory for all fiber artists. We discuss color theory, working with different color combinations and how color value effects your projects from knitting to spinning to weaving to felting.
