The Joy of Color is Janine Bajus' 3-day Design Your Own Fair Isle workshop expanded and in written form. She demystifys the design process, walking you through it step-by-step so you can create the design you want: classic, modern, bohemian, folkloric, subdued, bright—whatever you can dream of!
The Joy of Color is divided into 6 chapters:
Getting It Done
The Techniques chapter answers the questions that most often come up in class. This is not a project book (there are no patterns in the book—it’s all about YOU making YOUR OWN designs!), but in the back you will find several blank templates for small projects.
Every chapter includes a workshop section and recommended resources for further exploration along with several case studies of my garments. You can hear from 13 students about how they designed their sweaters using the process outlined in this book.
