What if you could have a love affair with the colours from your favourite painting? Would you create an illuminated ode to the artist’s palette? The couched ring shape has no hierarchy of colour, nor a visual starting or ending point – would you like to know how to create your own unique ring of colour?
In this 6-week course you will have the opportunity to dive deep into colour theory through the works of Chevreul and Goethe – among others – to help you understand why colour choices are made and the impact they have on a work of art. Using a palette of threads based on a painting, you will first make a couched sample. Then, after careful exploration and playing with colour order, you get to use the goldwork technique of couching in the round with the colours you have discovered in their relative proportions. Come explore, experiment, and delight with me to expand your knowledge and comfort with colour choices and technical stitching, culminating in an embroidery piece as a personal tribute to a painting of your choosing.
