10 Years Ago…

In September of 2002, we opened our doors on the corner of 18th and Sanchez. Since then, we’ve expanded into our second room and gone through several online facelifts. These last 10 years have been a wonderful whirlwind of fiber and new friends. Thank you to everyone that has helped and supported us along the way. We couldn’t have done it without you.

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!

= One fun morning! Mark your calendars. Amy Hendrix, President of Madeline Tosh, and creator of a palette of fabulous yarn colors will be teaching us about color theory March 11th from 9–11 AM. We have 30 spots open for the class and the cost to attend is $35. Call the shop, (415) 621-6642, to reserve your spot in the class and to find out about the supply list.

More about the class:
This workshop will provide students with a fun and fascinating introduction to the
basic concepts of a range of theories regarding the use of color. Many have
thought color selection is intuitive and unable to be learned. Yet, by combining
simple concepts, a smidge of history and a little fun with colored pencils everyone
can understand and apply both historical and modern color palettes and concepts
in their crafting projects.

What you will learn:
• General color theory and how light alters color perception
• The Albers color theory and the importance of understanding how colors interact with one another
• What color pairings great artists have chosen historically to create stunning palettes
• How to combine colors to generate complimentary pairings in your knitting
• How to select colors to pair with your hair, eyes and/or complexions
• How to include bright colorways in your knitting in ways you will actually wear
• Warm vs. cool color relationships, how to balance them and why
• The beauty of analogous color schemes, creating subtle color palettes with depth and definition
• How to create modern color palettes, and what modern artists practice often but never say

Hope to see you there!
