Strictly colour

Breakdown printing


Are you baffled by colour - how to mix the one you want - how to combine colours - how to make colours pop?
This course will take you through the world or colour in both dyes and pigments so whatever medium you choose to work with, you have the knowledge to be able to play with colour with confidence.
Regular Zoom live classes on a Monday afternoon once a month over the whole year will take you through the world of warm and cool primaries, how to mix successful purples, what colours can create greys and browns, what role black and white play in colour mixing, tones, shades, tints and much more, all done with a lot of playing and experimentation on both paper and some fabric.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
