Guild Meeting

We had our Guild Meeting on Saturday at the Pioneer Craft House in Salt Lake City. Londi gave us all a lot of food for thought with her hands-on color theory class - I think we all learned a lot about primary, secondary, and tertiary colors and how the color wheel works. Of course, this information is helpful for us when it comes to dyeing the wool we want for our hooked rugs, and how to choose colors that will be harmonious together. Here are some pictures of the process:

After the color class, we pulled out the supplies needed for making covered button bracelets using wool fabrics. The gals had a lot of fun with this project and the variety of colors and fabrics used made each person's version completely original. Very fun! It will be fun to see these being worn by their makers at future meetings.

  1. This class was so valuable, I had several Aha moments in relation to my dyeing. Thank you, Londi!
