Color(ed Pencil) from the Classroom

 Fabric design by Christine Hubbell (the lowermost square is a design by Kaffe Fassett)
Each year we offer a course related to fabric design. We learn about historic and contemporary textile designers and use their work as an inspiration to create our own patterns and color combinations. This year's class was inspired by Kaffe Fassett who has captivated us since the 1970’s with his colorful work in fabric, knitting, needlepoint, patchwork, painting and mosaic.
Learning about the various effects of layered and analogous colors was a good companion course for the fabric design.
