Online workshopsColour Sense 1,2 and 3 A series of 3 online workshops with a structured approach to colour, a major element in creative work. Each workshop gives step by step instructions and tasks about colour theory and how to become more confident in using colour. They are suitable for beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. The next six week cycle of the three workshops will start on September 6th. Colour Sense 4 is for those who have completed the first three Colour Sense workshops and want to extend their practice and push the boundaries.
It starts April 17th and will be limited to 12 participants. This will include a Zoom feedback session.
