Color Theory / Color Design Workshop
By Amy Hendrix, President of Madelinetosh
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
• 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.

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.
Please bring a set of colored pencils or pastels and gridded paper as well as a pen/pencil for notes!
