That’s right, swatching can be a joyous exercise! This three-hour hands-on workshop explores both the technical and existential elements of swatching. We look at why we swatch, the mechanics of a good swatch, and what it will teach us. We also go one step further and look a swatching as more than a means to gauge, but as a valuable exercise all is own. You’ll emerge with a broadened understanding of, respect for, and fondness toward the act of swatching.
