Color Theory in Action: Fibre Space in DC
After extensive preparation on my living room floor (if this looks like fun, you can get a set of Color Aid cards for yourself here)...
... it was time to teach! Last night I returned from Fibre Space in Alexandria, Virginia, right outside Washington, D.C. If you think the website looks awesome, the store itself is a hundred times as awesome. Danielle, the owner, stocks yarns and books from the latest, most cutting-edge indie dyers and designers, along with all the classics and everything you'd expect from a full-service yarn store.
There's also a room for classes and workshops, with a huge chalkboard. I taught Color Theory for Knitters and an Albers Cowl workshop. Both were filled with creative, engaged students, full of energy. Here are a few of the color theory samples; I should have taken some photos when the table was COVERED with Color Aid cards and their corresponding yarns. Chaos!
Check out this AMAZING swatch that came out of Color Theory class!
And now I give in to my exhaustion and take a nap.
