Weaving New Worlds: Colour Blending Workshop


Led by master weaver Caron Penney, whose stunning work features in Weaving New Worlds, this lively one day tapestry weaving workshop will offer students the opportunity to advance their colour blending ability. This will enable the group to explore mark making, colour theory and hatching. At the end of the workshop participants will take home a completed tapestry. Aimed at adults, this workshop is suitable for intermediate level participants.

You will learn:

  • Basic colour theory
  • How to use blending techniques to create shading
  • How to create hatching techniques creating a change of colour from the left to the right of the work.

Intermediate Level Class
