Look at color in a whole different way!
The only thing I can add to the previous reviews is: "DITTO!" I was sure I had enough knowledge to be able to put colors together in a pleasing manner. I still learned a lot from this DVD! One of these days I want to meet and learn from Laura Bryant in person! If you are unsure about putting colors together in any medium, you need this DVD! Even if you think you have enough knowledge about color, I highly recommend this DVD. If you are buying a download, I recommend getting the HD. I bought the regular download, and although I am very pleased with my purchase, I wish I had gotten the HD version for just a better quality video. Review by Barbara McCay (Posted on 1/20/2012)
Excellent video, it's like taking a master class in color theory and analysis
Laura Bryant's DVD on color in fiber is astonishingly excellent. I would have happily paid two or three times the price of this video for this information. I learned more from her than I ever did in fine arts classes. Laura's presentation of the material is extremely well organized and she has that magical teaching ability to take more complex color principles and teach them simply with tons of great examples for each topic. I highly recommend this video. I know it has changed how I will approach color in all of my fiber work, and I am greatly inspired to play with colors in new and exciting ways with a strong sense of confidence.

Laura is the Color Guru of the fiber world! She illuminates the subject of color in a way that is unique and memorable!
EXCEPTIONAL color resource tool, ELOQUENTLY presented, with EXACTING language makes Laura Bryant's new DVD a must-have for any artist at any level! Amplified by her exacting language, systematic formula-based approach to color, Laura illuminates the color discussion in a practical, clear, and easy-to-apply method. Complete with a fascinating and original examination of color relationships, Laura will guide your color endeavors in order to take your projects from "crafty" to "professional". It is the "WOW" factor you have been longing for! If you have never experienced the luxury, style, and professionalism of one of Laura's workshops, after viewing this DVD you will never miss a future opportunity to participate in one. If you have had the privilege of seeing Laura in person, you will revel in the opportunity to recapture those magical moments and the extraordinary detail that she always packs into every workshop over and over with the DVD. Ever wonder why your completed knit object doesn't garner compliments everywhere you go? or, you are disappointed because the completed item didn't give the finished result you had hoped for? and, worse yet, you have an array of hand-crafted items just like it and can't seem to put your finger on WHY you never get it quite right? GET THIS DVD!! No discussion on color/color wheels will clear the fog like Laura can!! Additionally, the DVD is a VISUAL DELIGHT with color that explodes from every example of her stunning hand-dyed Prism yarn and knitted garments. Treat yourself to the DVD and the yarn!! Your colorful fiber world will never be the same again!! Review by NULL NULL (Posted on 5/23/2011)
All Fiberholics need to watch this video!
A Knitter's Guide to Color with Laura Bryant is excellent. Laura does such a great job of teaching color theory. After watching this video I have a completely new perspective on how to use color in my knitting. I highly recommend this video not only for knitters but for all of the fiber arts. Review by Christina Coogan (Posted on 5/16/2011)
Totally worth getting
I have always said that I don't know a thing about color and how pleasing it can be. I learned so many things from Laura Bryant's color teaching and advice. I was completely charmed and came out with more usable knowledge than I thought I would get. Thank you, I was obviously delighted. Review by Ulda Santana (Posted on 3/30/2011)
