Missenden School of Creative Arts summer School

Image into stitch inspired by the work of John Piper

August 5 -7th

John Piper worked throughout the greater part of the twentieth Century, exploring a wide range of techniques and subjects. This course is based on his work about the countryside, and how historical buildings connect to their environment.

He used printmaking to illustrate his interests so we will explore mono print as a means to generate ideas. Imagery will come from architectural sources and we will endeavour to capture the effect of ‘shabby chic’ that so appealed to him.

Taking Textiles Further 15/16th June

This workshop looks at the work of Gillian Ayres, a widely respected British abstract artist working across the second half of the twentieth century. Her work has huge energy and vitality, with bold colour and shape and non figurative in its style.

We used this reference to create our own abstract images with strong colour contrasts and surface textures and a playful approach to media

Students enjoyed the freedom of applying  paint in various ways: drips, dabs, splattering, pouring and scraping  and aimed to emulate the excitement of colour and shape as seen in this popular artist’s work.
