talks & workshops I have given

Colour comforts

Saturday, 17th February 2017 from 1pm
Quilt NSW - Members only

A talk about how colour influences our everyday decisions and moods in subliminal ways. Colour is intrinsically linked to how we make sense of the world. The role that history and varying cultures play has an influence on individual colours and this will be demonstrated through images from my travels. 

We will also discuss the importance of placement and choice of hues so that they affect us in positive ways.

This Colour Workshop is about making creative choices, finding your palette and gaining the confidence not to waiver from what feels just right to you. Your curiosity about colour will be fed with talk of harmony, companionship, tone, discord, cultural meanings, country colours and an important discussion on whether your sense of composition is learnt or instinctive. Lets have some fun together
