Exploring Colour workshop

Last weekend I had a very enjoyable day running a workshop for Phoenix Contemporary Textiles Group. They chose to do the Exploring Colour workshop that  is inspired by the colourful and exuberant work of one my favourite artists – Terry Frost. The workshop is based on a painting exercise that Frost devised for his students while teaching at Reading University where he taught painting from 1964-1981.

The aim of this exercise is to create a full palette of colours using only red, blue and yellow paint. The colours range from almost black (which is created by using all three colours together) to pure red, blue and yellow. Papers are painted and then used to make abstract collages that reference Terry Frost’s work and are inspired by colour and shape.

Here are some of the fabulous pieces of work that Phoenix produced…
