During this masterclass, studio RENS invites you to develop your own colour palette through experiments and research. Colour is relevant in any design. The colours in textiles are rarely monotonous but are a composition of yarns that together form a new colour. The chosen production technique is also an important part of how you experience colour in textiles. Studio RENS challenges you to start your own research in which you will create new colours through experiments.
The aim of the masterclass
The goal is to look for the many possibilities of colour. During the two-day masterclass, each participant will make their own colour research. You do this by means of 3D experiments and experiments with yarns. You will learn how to use yarns in different ways. Each test can be a work of art in itself. In the end, the unique works are discussed together and everyone takes their own work with them. This masterclass has no fixed outcome, each participant works on a personal investigation. This will produce varying results; from an inspiring experiment that you can continue independently later on to a standalone work of art.
