One of Joen’s specialties is teaching about colour and she tells us this is her favourite short colour workshop. In this techniques workshop you will be presented with important colour basics, so that the world of colour is in your hands. Then you will learn how to create some of the most wonderful colour illusions, depth, luminosity and luster. Explore further the illusions of shadows, highlights, and transparency. You should leave the class with a wide array of evocative lighting ideas to use in your future quilts.
