All color is relative: Amy Hendrix visits ImagiKnit

Amy Hendrix Visits

Amy Hendrix, the creative mind behind Madeline Tosh, stopped by for a color theory workshop this weekend. We learned some basic principles of color theory, and then used those principles to better mix and match colors for our knitting projects.

The first half of the class was spent learning some of the history of color, and how it has been used and created throughout. We learned many of the terms we could use to describe colors such as hue and saturation.

The second half of the class we got down to business learning what made a good color combination, how to match our own complexions, and how to translate that into our knitting projects.

Thanks again Amy! We had a great time!
