The Kangaroo Dyer’s Thoughts on Color

Without an understanding of what constitutes color and how colors relate to each other, choosing colors in any medium is chancy. This class will help you understand the 3 primary colors, beginning with simple exercises in mixing colors and moving on to using food coloring on fiber. Students will leave the class with color samples, their recipes, and their own unique color book, plus the confidence to choose color thoughtfully for any craft.
