Colour Workshop with Mary Mabbutt

This course is now fully booked but anyone interested to know more and sign up for another workshop can contact Mary at:

Mary developed Colour Workshops while working as a tutor on the Fine Art and Illustration courses at Falmouth University twelve years ago.

"I felt that an understanding of the principal contrast effects in the world of colour was extremely useful information to have and it also became a fascination for me with my own painting."

Over the years Mary has developed a number of projects to enable students to develop an awareness of these qualities of colour contrast. Mary is presently working as Colour Consultant to the BA Textile Course at Falmouth.

Mary's understanding is based on the principles "Colour Contrast" from the book, Design and Form, by Johannes Itten, The Basic Course at the Bauhaus, first published in 1963.

The course will be taught over two consecutive days from 9.30 to 4pm. The cost is £90 per person. People wishing to attend should provide their own materials. Information on the particular requirements will be provided.

It is important that students who would like to attend the course should have familiarity with painting as the course is entirely practical and the exercises are carried out with paint and brushes on paper
