 Workshop on Colour
On Saturday June 10th Sherry Barker hosted an informative workshop on Colour after attending the workshop herself on Salt Spring Island.  This workshop was not only for weavers, if you knitted, sewed, crochet, embroidered, it was for you! We enjoyed exploring colour in a group setting.  This workshop helped us to see colour in an easy and different way, and gave us some fun ideas going into our summer projects.


Here is Sherry, asking us to pick out a picture from a magazine.

From there we were going to explore all the colours in that picture.

The workshop was well attended.

With 19 in attendance.

We all took turns picking out a colour scheme from our picturres.
