We still have some space on this fabulous one-day course tomorrow.  You can learn all about colour with Andrew Carroll.  Andrew trained as an Architect and Interior Designer, before qualifiying with a BA and MA in Visual Arts Practice from IADT Dun Laoghaire. He has exhibited at the RHA annual exhibition.

Everyone who makes garments and accessories knows how important colour can be to the success of the finished product, but how many of us are confident when it comes to putting colours together? A class in colour-theory can have you creating colour combinations that will add that professional touch to your garments.
