Color Inspiration Workshop with Amy Butler

A couple of years ago, at a quilt market in Houston, I ran in to Amy Butler and her husband David and in passing I asked Amy if she would ever want to come to France with us to teach.  David immediately answered for her and said, YES!  Then I said, what about two weeks, and David said, YES, again!  So, for almost three weeks this past summer, Amy joined Kick, Molly, Mogull and me as we welcomed guests from all over the world to our little corner of the South of France.  We had such a good time with Amy in France, before our weeks were over, I asked her if she would like to come teach at French General someday.  Not knowing when it would happen...we both loved the idea and decided to work at making it happen.
Fast forward just a couple of months...and we have a plan!  Amy is coming to Los Angeles to teach her Color Inspiration Workshop at French General on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013.  We will start the morning with Amy's colorful talk about how she creates her beautiful patterns and fabric.  Amy includes tips on where to look for color combinations and finding inspiration everywhere - whether we are traveling or sitting in the garden.   We will break for lunch and in the afternoon, begin to put together our own color palette books - filled with fabric swatches, paint chips, and magazine clippings.  Amy will teach how to pull out color from theses collages to create our own personal color palette - which can be used in our homes, our wardrobe and our art.
This promises to be a special day at French General with the unique opportunity of creating with Amy Butler....I hope you can join us!  Seating is limited.
