Textile Inspirations in Boston…

bargello4I will be presenting my workshop = Combining  Colors with Confidence  /Textile Inspirations for Bead Designer’s International  in Lexington (Boston) MA, April 25th and 26th. The registration is now open to non-members and the  information is here.  You can see this class in action in NYC at Sculpt.com or view the results of Rita Simm, who took her “homework”  from this workshop very seriously here.


Combining Colors with Confidence/Textile Inspirations –two day workshop

logcabinweb1  Join Lindly Haunani, a nationally recognized colorist for a fun and illuminating weekend workshop. While you may know just what colors you like, exactly how to mix them (or not), using them in harmonious combinations can be challenging. Learn how to add impact to your work with increased color confidence while learning several valuable skills for working with polymer clay.


 You will learn strategies for designing and mixing cohesive color schemes, including how to choose a level of saturation within your comfort zone. You will learn the secret to making successful “skinny” skinners that will be used to make nine different laminated textile patterns including the popular Log Cabin Quilt design, Spirals, Seminole Patchwork, Bargello and a variation of Nine Patch.  In addition to having fun, you will leave with a series of wearable color samples/brooches. You will increase your awareness of how appropriate color choices and contrasts can add impact to your work.


See how the three properties of color: value, hue and saturation dazzle and change when proportion, juxtaposition and surface are consciously adjusted. Ask questions, be ready to laugh and increase your color confidence.
