I've now been to 2 of the 5 colour course days. It is such an eye opener to really look at colour. We are also painting our own colour wheel by mixing paint colours ourself. Next time we should finish this assignment, I find it not easy at all to get the right colours. We are using 2 reds, 2 blues and 2 yellows + black & white for the mixing.
We have also been playing with all the different colours that the Venne cotton yarn comes in. In 2 groups we had to make some kind of order in the colours. We found that there were some colours that did not fit in very easy. (like not fitting in with green or blue, yet they did look like green or blue)
It was a fun exercise to do together.
The home assignment is to work with 3 colours that we like and being close together + 1 colour that is an opposite. We had to make a yarn winding these colours for a warp idea.
I have gone for natural colours + a purple and I've just finished the plain weave samples, weaving the weft as the warp colour order. One I have washed (sample on the right side) and the other I will keep unwashed for my record keeping archive.
We have had some lovely sunny days these last few days and it gave a feeling of Spring arriving may be. But oh now, we have more snow forecasted for this weekend and freezing temperatures. A good excuse to stay indoors and do more weaving.....
