This Wednesday morning workshop is given by Joke van Soest, free-lance embroidery teacher with many years of experience in designing and creating embroideries.

In this workshop she will be exploring, together with the participants, the concept of colour and different methods of creating colour combinations, and in doing so she will be looking at various examples of patchwork and embroidery and help the participants to make them more consciously aware of how to use colour combinations to make satisfying end products.

As with all Wednesday morning workshops, this event will combine theoretical and practical elements.

Date: 28th February. Time: 10.00 - 13.00. Costs: 25 euros including materials, tea/coffee. Participants: maximum of 15 people. Language: Dutch (with English explanations if required).
