Material Obsession has hosted Kaffe and Brandon for color workshops many times. Each time I am left feeling out of control. My mind is a mash up of things I don't want to forget seeing, combinations I want to remember, and directions I want to explore. Each time I learn more by an osmosis of the experience dictating that the only way to understand colour process is to keep an open mind to what you see working as well as to what isn't without bias or preconception.
It also helps to use your clothes as a color palette. Here we have Sandra reflecting her quilt in the passionate colors we associate with Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics.
Kaffe and Brandon travel the world looking, seeing and sharing their ultimate level of experience with the people in the workshops.
This workshop started out as a room of tabula rosa vistas but ended up a sea of glorious color. It was a delight to be a part of it and to watch the process of get it up quick then fine tune to perfection. It isn't always easy and some struggle with the concept but there is no doubt that these guys see color in a magnificent and varied way.
It is hard to go back to normal life when they go. I was really grumpy for a day but am now turning my eye to the road ahead which is filled with God things like...Flock Together! Visit us in the shop and ask to see what we have done with my new range then go do someone marvellous with it yourself!!!
Always something happening at Material Obsession!
