Playing with Instinctive Colour with Maggie Maggio


Playing with Instinctive Colour: A Trio of Thorn Bracelets

 

Maggie Maggio Workshop Thorn Bracelets

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Everyone has a unique and instinctive sense of colour. When you combine your personal sense of colour with your preferences for contrast and compositions you create a distinctive colour voice. Come spend a day learning how to tap into your colour instincts!

We will start by making a colour collage and then mix a matching palette using Maggie’s Mixing Map. This easy-to-use colour chart is designed to help you mix any colour you want using just three primaries and white.

Once you have a collection of colours that match your collage you can play with different colour combinations as you create a trio of colour coordinated thorn bracelets using Maggie’s signature Colour wash technique.

This class is a must for anyone who works with polymer. Don’t miss out, book early.
