A bit of colour and texture . . . and FUN!

 A colour wheel and a tints, tones and shades chart.

 Here we are back at the IDC studios at The Old Needle Works in Redditch www.inkberrowdesigncentre.co.uk/experimental-textiles.

I am teaching my two ExTex 3 groups - we have a Thursday/Friday group and a Saturday/Sunday group. This month we are looking at the use of colour in art and textiles and painting colour wheels and tints, tones and shades charts.
We will also be playing with their printing blocks along with wax crayons and procion dye.

 
 Painting the colour wheels.

 Some very pretty mixing plates.

 A finished colour wheel.

The Thursday/Friday group produced some fab homework - there isn't room on here for all of it, but here is a selection . . . .


I will post more about the work the girls create over the next three days on Monday before I dash up to Art Van Go to teach my Transfer to Transform workshop.

Just a quick plug for my Hot Textiles weekend at the Bridge in Brighton on the 6th and 7th of September. The course is running but we have room for three more if any of you are interested.
I haven't taught this workshop for a while, it will be great to play with Tyvek, painted Bondaweb, Spunbond and all the heat tools. Two days to develop your skills with heat tools and have fun at the same time.

 Layers of Tyvek stitched together and then zapped with a heat gun.

Have great weekend.
