Taking Textiles Turther2019/20
This years theme will explore various aspects of Pattern, a vast subject found across all cultures and traditions within the decorative arts.
Sat/Sun 27/28th October Missenden ‘Taking textiles Further’ exploring pattern
|This course will explore historical themes in relation to pattern, referencing the floral designs of William Morris the well known nineteenth century designer|
March 9/10th March 2019 We will explore pattern using architecture as a theme to create an angular, geometric style incorporating straight lines, simple shapes and flat colour. A variety of methods of making print blocks will enable repeats to be made and the use of bold colour contrasts and varied line quality will ensure imaginative pattern to be formed. Consideration will be given to how these patternsmay be translated into fabric and thread.
15/16th June 2019
|During the course we will construct and embellish a range of 3D forms inspired by flowers. We will work with a variety of materials; paper, card, plastics, wires and thread to make decorative elements that will be repeated to build pattern. Let your imagination run riot as we interpret the many amazing plant forms in the style of Haeckel. The resulting designs will lend themselves to the construction of jewelry in all its variety, mirror frames, dimensional panels or decorations for shoes or hats.|
