  1. Playing with Colour, February 27 2016, cowgirlblues studio, with Bridget
    Most of us have “favourite colours”.  They may be traditional, cultural or shaped by previous experience; and are sometimes tempered by seasonal or holiday influences.  We seldom have the opportunity to explore and play with colour without any specific objective in mind.  In this workshop we will use a series of creative experiments to explore colour in different ways and see what new insights it brings.  Knitters, crocheters and weavers are welcome!
