History to Colour Forecasting Today: MODULE 2

History to Colour Forecasting Today: module 2

What is the Colour Course?

How do you know what colours are in fashion next season and what the future trends are in color?


Colour choices are shaped by the cultural and social context of the time that we live in, as well as the past. Identify fresh new ways to use colour by looking at the social and political influences that shaped historical colour trends so you can determine present and future colour trends.


This module will give you an understanding of historically proven rules of form and colour. You will consider colour from different cultures and belief systems, such as those of Steiner, Itten and Feng Sui. Practical, fun and inspirational sessions will help you develop colour palettes and provide you with colour organizational tools.
