CCUK hosted a colourful book event with one of their sponsors, Karen Haller an Applied Colour Psychology Practitioner. Karen was in conversation with Susi Bellamy, artist and CCUK Chair.
The event was organised in conjunction with Forum Books, an award winning independent bookshop in Corbridge and held in The Biscuit Factory, the UK’s largest independent commercial art, craft and design gallery set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter.
Susi and Karen had a lively conversation discussing how colour can be positively embraced and ways to bring it into our everyday life; how colour makes us feel; why we are drawn to certain colours yet dislike others; how we can use colour in our clothes, our home, in our everyday life to help us create positive feelings and responses to support everyday happiness. The discussion ended with Karen addressing audience questions and was followed by a book signing.
Karen enjoyed meeting the CCUK audience and the event confirmed her long held view that the North East loves colour!
