On this course we will investigate tone and line in a number of ways and explore their uses in design for both art and textiles. Preliminary work will be carried out using a variety of tools, media and surfaces and will form the basis for personal interpretations into larger pieces of work and into cloth and stitch. As with nearly all my courses, artist research will offer further insight into the development of personal ideas around this theme. This course is suitable for all levels of ability with the exercises spread over four sessions weekly.
Session 1 Tone in Design
Session 2 Line in Design
Session 3 Exploring Expressive Line
Session 4 Changing the surface, media, tools and scale.
If you find you do not have a certain items required for this course you should be able to improvise. Alternatively most of the art materials and fabrics needed can be obtained from ART VAN GO who are still doing mail order.
Here is their website : www.artvango.co.uk
You are required to make yourself a couple of frames for this course. They should be made out of thin card or from 160gms to 220gms of cartridge paper. The frame must neither be of too thin a paper or too thick. Instructions will be given in Session 1 of the course but also below, so that you can at least prepare.
A4 Sketchbook ~ the paper must be of a good quality (not less than 160gms). Can be A3 if preferred.
Colouring Media and Materials/Threads
Making your frames
You will need to begin by making yourself a couple of frames out of something like 160gms to 220gms cartridge paper. Anything thinner will wear out too quickly and if too thick it will not work so well.
