Jean Scorgie's in the HOUSE! October 6, 2018

Autumn has descended upon us cold and wet! Despite that, let us celebrate the fun part of autumn…the Colorful change of season. Jean Scorgie will be talking to us about Color in Natural Objects. An object from the natural world displays a range of harmonious colors that enhance each other. Looking beyond the two or three obvious colors in a natural object reveals a world of nuanced colors rich in expression. Learn to see these subtleties by closely matching natural colors to the multitude of colors in embroidery floss. Then explore ways to use these colors in your weaving.

So join us this coming Saturday and help us celebrate the colors of nature.

Jean will conduct her workshop Colors from Natural Objects: Exploring the Possibilities after the November meeting on November 3rd. Click here to register.
