Color Choosing Confidence in a Class

Color is arguably one of the most essential elements of a project. Choosing the right color combinations can be difficult, especially when prints are thrown into the mix. Should you use solids or prints or combine the two? And what about value? Cindy Grisdela is an award-winning fiber artist who guides you through using value effectively as a tool — whether a fabric is light, medium, or dark — and taking your composition from ho-hum to wow!


Cindy takes the (color) wheel in this colorful, fabulous lecture! Strategically navigate the color wheel with simple tips and tricks along the way. You’ll learn how to choose a color palette of 8-12 fabrics that work together to create stunning projects. Discover alternative ways to gather your color inspiration from simple to personalized approaches, such as pulling colors from a focus fabric or using a favorite photo or piece of art as your inspiration.
