Playful Color Theory for Quilters

A virtual workshop with Rebecca Bryan

Learn my Color Tricks!

Join me, Rebecca, in my online workshop, Playful Color Theory for Quilters! In the first part of the workshop, we'll be using paint to explore color theory in a way we can't using fabrics. In the second part of the workshop we'll be completing hands on exercises to experience using color theory in playful ways.  

By the end of the workshop, you'll have a new understanding of color theory and a tool kit for using color (playfully!) in your own quilts. 

What you’ll get from this 10 -week workshop:

If you've ever thought, "I wish I knew more about color theory" or "I wish I had more confidence in choosing colors", then this is the workshop for you! 

I'll teach you my color short cuts while we take a deeper look at color theory. Each lesson delivers content and exercises geared at providing a solid foundation in Color Theory framed around tools you can immediately put to use. 

Color can be an incredible challenge. In my own work I've discovered more than a few tricks and tips, systems and routines, that have made working with color easier and more manageable. My goal in the workshop is to equip you with all of my Playful Color Tools, so you can play with color in your own creative works. 

You'll have lifetime access to all the course materials: video lessons, articles, hands on activities, PDF worksheets, and a community of quilters.  

A Virtual Classroom

Content is presented both through videos and articles and video format through our virtual classroom. Class begins as soon as you register, and you'll have lifetime access to the classroom once we wrap.

Interactive Exercises

I'll guide you through hands on exercises which allow you to play with color theory and develop your color toolbox. 


Color is social! We need a place where we can get constructive feedback on our color palettes. You'll find that here! Connect with me and a diverse community of makers and quilters in the Virtual Classroom.
