Color Confidence with Shannon Brinkley



Color Confidence

Join quilt/fabric designer, author and national teacher Shannon Brinkley for a class that will build your “Color Confidence". 

In this workshop, we begin (or continue) to train our eye to notice hue, color harmony, and balance. You'll learn about color theory, exploring classic color palettes and how to build them, and go through several exercises that will literally train our eyes to distinguish subtle differences in color, value, and saturation. You’ll also learn how to mix and match prints, playing with color and scale to create totally unique and beautiful looks. 

This workshop is very hands on, concrete, and fun. This class is appropriate for anyone from those who have no idea how to use a color wheel and only ever use precuts, to more advanced quilters with a great eye for color who are looking to create more interesting, dynamic palettes and develop a signature style.

About the instructor
Shannon Brinkley is a quilt / fabric designer, author, and national speaker and teacher based in Austin, Tx.

Shannon has always been drawn to any craft involving textiles. As a young girl, she explored weaving, embroidery, knitting, garment sewing, among others, and began quilting in college, where she fell completely in love with the craft. Inspired by her love of fabric and the texture, Shannon wrote the book Scrappy Bits Applique, where she teaches how to turn scraps of fabric into gorgeous, modern art quilts by collaging a variety of fabrics, vintage and new, with different colors, tones, and patterns to create really interesting and unique textures.

A former elementary teacher, teaching remains a huge passion of Shannon's, and she speaks and teaches her modern quilting techniques all across the United States.
