An exploration in cloth, paper and stitch developing concertina book forms.
‘I must go down to the sea again’. Take a close look, observe, find your sea view, imagine, and respond making
a simple folded book form in paper and cloth with hand stitch. Work with loose expressive mark making, developing visual language using a variety of drawing media with simple collage techniques in a relaxed and creative approach to textile development.
The aim of the course is to develop and explore expressive techniques with mark making and visual language, simplification, and abstraction, working with a limited palette through experimentation with mixed media and hand stitch. Working with personal seascape inspiration, develop responses and colour notes, observing shape, line, and colour within your view, responding to experiences of the sea.
Work intuitively with materials and mediums to create responses using line, texture and colour. Discover different qualities in drawn lines with resist, layered tissue and colour washes to free up and create expressive original abstract arrangements to develop with stitch.
Suitable for those who enjoy the challenge of intuitive experimentation, exploration and extension of creative boundaries who have an open mind and a desire to explore.
