Color Magic: Color Families

with Deb Menz

DVD or Video Download • 63 minutes

In any medium, color is the key to successful crafting. The right color combination can take a project from good to spectacular, whereas a poor combination can waste time and materials with disappointing results. The great news is that “color sense” can be learned! In this video, master colorist and crafter Deb Menz introduces you to the family traits of colors. What is a “warm” blue? How does yellow affect everything around it, and how can you use that to your advantage? What if you can’t find the exact color of yarn, fabric, or beads that you want? How can you design or substitute with confidence? 
Through color exercises with Deb, you’ll learn:
  • The six hue families
  • How to identify and work with warm and cool colors
  • How to spot and work with undertones
  • How to successfully combine hue families in your designs
Master colorist and  crafter Deb Menz makes color theory fun and accessible and applies it to a multitude of crafts!

This workshop covers color concepts for knitting, spinning, weaving, surface design, hand-and-machine-embroidery, beadwork, quilting, and paper collage.

Her approach is invaluable for any artist and crafter, whether you design your own projects from the ground up or are just shopping for colors from your stash or the craft store.
