"The Playful Color Quick Start" Lecture with Rebecca Bryan

Can I tell you a secret? I might be known for my use of color, but did you know that I firmly believe you don’t have to learn about color theory. Not learn color theory... what?! Yes! It's true! Why learn about color theories and "sciency" stuff when you can invest your time and energy learning tools and tricks that allow you to easily work and play with color? By learning Playful Color strategies, not only will you start building your Playful Color Toolbox, but you'll actually end up learning about color theory in the end. Go figure! 

Apart from my "don't learn color theory" manifesto, in this lecture I'll be sharing a few of my favorite tools and strategies to quick start your Playful Color Toolbox. Oh, and there will be plenty of quilts to see!

Lecture: Passage Quilting

  • Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts (map)

Description:

Passage Quilting is an improvisational process about relationships, past and present. Working with materials that carry meaning, memory and emotions, the creative process of Passage Quilting fosters a healing heart. In this multimedia presentation, I review the traditions of memorial and scrap quilting with historical images, and share stories from my practice which illustrate how Passage Quilting supports the bereavement and growth process we all experience during times of transition.
