Friday April 24
Knit In Color

If you’ve been relying on yarn kits, to make color selection easier, or dedicating a huge chunk of your time to trying to select colors for your projects, then you will probably agree that color is one of the most important tools in a knitter’s arsenal. Yet, some of us struggle with creating color palettes that work. We don’t want to just finish projects. This workshop will guide you through all of the thought processes that I’ve relied on to create color palettes that work. Let’s have a color party! Join Mara Licolein an interactive and immersive workshop that will help you take your WIPs to the next level. Mara will teach you how to create color palettes you love. In this workshop, you will learn how to use individual colors, combine colors, and use everyday inspiration to develop color schemes like a designer. Through the art of paint pouring, Mara teaches color for knitters in a fun way! Note:

Students will have an opportunity to create artwork by painting so we recommend that you do not wear anything that would be ruined if paint were to get on it
