Color Camp: A One-day Retreat/Workshop

Color Camp: A One-day Retreat with Christine Barnes (workshop) brought to you by the CACC quilting group

Do you wish you had a better “color sense”? Do you stress when it’s time to choose colors and fabrics for a new quilt? You need to go on retreat to gain a new perspective.  You need to come to Color Camp!

This no-sew workshop consists of cut-and-paste color studies, with lots of help from the teacher and group critique of every block. The first three mock-block exercises focus on value (light and dark), temperature (warm and cool), and intensity (bright and dull).  These characteristics, more than color itself, determine the impact of a quilt. An
overview of the color wheel and a final exercise expose students to this invaluable (and amazing) tool for quilters. It’s lots of creative fun, and you’ll leave “Color Camp” with new ideas for working with color.

When: Saturday July 13 2013, 10 am to 5 pm
Where: College Ave Congregational Church Fellowship Hall
1341 College Ave. Modesto
Cost: $60.00 plus a $3.00 material fee….please make check out to and mail to: Cheri Barnes, 606 Hartley Dr, Modesto 95356

Contact person: Cheri Barnes 209-765-1448, barnes6@sbcglobal.net

At the midpoint of the day, Christine presents a mini trunk show of garments and quilts that show how she applies color basics to her work. She will also bring some of her new works.
