Just for a couple of weeks my house has been filled with colour and now to it’s time to pack all the decorations away. Colour is such an important part of everything I enjoy and has been even more, so during these last few months, deprived of the buzz of other people’s company and opportunities to engage in face to face creative activities.
A comment made by Edmund de Waal in an interview when asked about his own work came to mind :
‘What better way to talk about pots than to make them.’
I decided to immerse myself in colour and how it affected my own work, so decided to revisit colour theory and actually mix and explore colour. Out came the paints, brushes, and sketch books. My enthusiasm lead on to developing some new online courses for anyone who wanted to explore colour, increase their awareness and expand their own horizons – a topic I had often explored with students in a studio setting.
Colour Sense workshops 1, 2 & 3 are now available online and I’m looking forward to welcoming the first students in early January with a private Facebook page for participants for comments, queries and feedback.
