Sweet Georgia Color Play Class 6.12.19


Color Play: A color theory primer & yarn tasting party!

Wednesday, June 12th, 6 - 8:15PM.

Do you ever find yourself hesitant to try colorwork knitting because you are worried about making the wrong color choices? Let's face it, we invest a lot of time in our knittting, and sometimes a good bit of money and energy too - you want to be confident that you've made the "right" color choices. Our new yarn lines from Sweet Georgia are all about color, so they've created this fantastic color play class to help us all understand making color choices for our knitting.

This Sweet Georgia Color Play Class will walk us through the basics of working with color and help us feel more confident about creating our own palettes and color combinations for our projects. We will play, combine different colors based on a variety of inspirations, and then find different ways to knit them together to produce completely unique results.

This is a video-based class where we will watch three 10-minute videos, then complete fun exercises in palette creation based on classic color theories and variations that extend and modify these palettes. You will learn to combine colors in different ways to create your own personal color palette for a project.

Students will work with at least 36 Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock yarn colors all on mini bobbins, allowing all participants a myriad of color play options. You will take home a Color Play workbook with examples, notes, and space for your own notes. After class, you will have access to all the videos we watch during the session.

Participants should bring (or purchase at Maker+Stitch) knitting needles to knit a range of gauges: US 4 - US 11 (the larger sizes allow you to hold together multiple strands of sock yarn). Also bring a notebook and pen to take notes.

Store credit will be offered for cancellations made before January 17th. No refunds for cancellations made after January 17th.

Class will take place in the shop: Maker+Stitch, 56 Edwards Village Blvd., Unit 109, Edwards CO 81632
