Saturday Workshop

In this one day workshop you will learn about the complexities of colour in a straightforward way. Beginning with an understanding of colour biases you will create sophisticated palettes, through observing how colour is relative and constantly changing.
Throughout the day you will be using paint and palette knives to mix colours that demonstrate an exploration and understanding of:

Chromatic blacks and to identify their hue family
Complementary colours and how to use them to create limited palettes

Analogous colour schemes and how these can be used to create harmony
Colour temperature and how there are no such things as warm and cool colours
The relationship between colour and tone (the hardest and most important aspect of colour)

"Our day at Juliet's Colour Workshop was amazing. Her teaching style is vivid and inspiring and we left feelin totally energised. The workshop comprehensively covers all aspects of colour theory in an utterly practical and really enjoyable way. Juliet took us on many wonderful tangential journeys into the relationship between the different properties of colour and composition, narrative, fashion, mood and so may aspects of our visual world... She created an astonishing learning experience that I can't recommend highly enough."
Paul, Art Director

Further Information

Location: my studio is based in Dry Drayton, which is a small village just North of Cambridge. It is easy to reach by car, being 5 minutes from the A14 and there is plenty of parking right outside. If you are coming by train a lift is usually available to and from Cambridge station (aim to be at the station for 9.30am).

Studio address: 3 Searles Meadow, Dry Drayton, Cambridge, CB23 8BW

What to bring: materials are provided, including use of paint, paper, palette knives and glass palettes. Drinks and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.

Classes: due to the small class size (maximum of 4 people) you will get a high level of quality individual tuition and personal input. The focus is on practical work and there will be a lot of information to take in, however I provide notes for you to take away and try to ensure that you have the knowledge and confidence to continue your exploration of colour independently.
