Decode the secrets of colour
Decode colour and gain confidence in choosing fabrics

Learn what the colour wheel is, how it works, and how to make the most of your stash in this new workshop, Colour Confidence. Which colours sing together out loud and which produce a soft and soothing hum?  Play with colour combinations and decode the jargon of monochrome, complementary, tertiary, value and tint, tone and shade!

Let Edwina’s low-pressure approach de-mystify colour for you using your own fabrics, and put your new knowledge into practice by designing a stunning piece of patchwork, whether you’re a beginner or not.

Colour Confidence is a one-day workshop on Friday, 31 May and costs £45. As always, you can book online, or through the shop.
