Summer School 2018: Process and Change
Contrasts in Cloth ** class full, waiting list only **
NOTE: There is one available on the course with Ruth Issett but Alice Fox’s course and Dorothy Tucker’s course are now fully booked and a waiting list has been started.
With flowers and plants as our source of inspiration and by travelling through several processes, including hand and/or machine stitching, we will create designs on cloth, and then risk making radical changes to the cloth’s surface and colour.
As we handle and compare the intriguing contrasts which will result from this journey a wealth of ideas will be released, collected and assembled.
Your explorations could come together to create a new complete piece or provide the basis for future work.
A course for those willing to take a few risks and to explore ideas expressed through fabric and thread.
Dorothy’s interest in the structure, delicious detail and the colour of plants often features in her textile pieces. The way she constructs these pieces using layers of cloth and stitches to draw, add colour or create texture is informed by her research into Kantha, a form of embroidered quilt from Bangladesh.
