Yarn blending produces deep, rich, shimmering colours and when cleverly used can create the illusion of transparency. The course will cover basic colour theory: understanding the importance of hue, tone and colour relationships in blending yarns. You will be creating a series of small colours sample exploring a range of techniques for colour blending in tapestry.
You will be working with a range of traditional materials including cotton, linen and wool to discover how different materials affect the surface quality and intensity of the colour.
Using contemporary painting as your colour inspiration you will be encouraged to create “a splash of colour” in a small finished tapestry.
