Add dynamism to your textile art by understanding how colour and colour tone works. Many terms are used in colour theory; high and low key, colour intensity, colour temperature, contrast, etc. This workshop aims to demystify the theory and put it into practice, helping to improve the overall look of your work. Sample pieces will be created for future reference.
