We are delighted to announce that A Great Yarn will be hosting famed pattern designer Casapinka, who will teach a Color Workshop on Friday, July 20th, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. A quick review of Casapinka’s patterns on Raverly will immediate cement her well-deserved reputation as one of the foremost designers and color experts on the planet. Plus she happens to be one on the best teachers you will ever encounter.
Casapinka will be joined by a great hand-dyer from Rhode Island – Gigi- who will assister her with teaching the class.
Casapinka’s workshop will be a non-traditional color class that will include an introduction to color with tips to help you choose gorgeous colors that you love for your knitting projects. There will be no lectures on color theory or the color wheel but if you are ever overwhelmed by colors in your yarn store, this will help you to ease that feeling. If you’re stuck in a rut this will help you to get out of it. If you just love color, this is a fun way to spend three hours. The third hour is reserved for individual help in choosing out yarn colors for any projects that you wish. I t’s often helpful to listen in as people go through the process of selecting colors – and usually the class ends up helping each other out!
Using your friends, people in the group, slides, and yarn all around us, along with different shawl samples, Casapinka will work on making various color combinations for multi-skein projects. You will leave the workshop with specific tips and tricks to implement and increased color confidence! Be prepared to laugh with each other, have some genuine “aha” moments and realize that there are tools all around you to help you with color selection.
Homework – None!
Required Materials – An open mind!
