Back in 2016 by popular demand: Gain a heightened understanding of colour through a set of challenging exercises and create your own individual, personal colour reference system using a kit of textile samples. Learn colour theory, colour base source identification, the symbolism of colours, likes/dislikes, period/ethnic colours and defining life times through colour – plus the different effects of light and colour through nature across the Australian landscape. Explore the grey scale and how to use it, understand the colour wheel, its intensity, contrast and harmony. Discover your personal relationship to colour, become aware of emotional responses and learn to create illusion with colour. Jan Frazer will also analyse several award-winning quilt masterpieces
