I still have space on a couple of on-going courses that may be of interest to one or two of you.
RUTH ISSETT ~ Colour Investigation
Three two-day sessions ~
13/14 February, 27/28 March, 8/9 May
COLOUR, PROPORTION, COMPOSITION & STITCH
Develop a series or significant textile pieces using fabric, thread and stitch techniques.
Work from your own selected theme or ideas and investigate a number of different ways to design for textile work. In the
first two day sessions you will use a number of different materials and techniques to explore your ideas that could then be interpreted into fabric and stitched pieces.
The March and May sessions will focus on the interpretation of these design ideas, focusing on your own personal development. A variety of different techniques will be suggested and you will be encouraged to sample and trial these with new materials, refining ideas towards a selected outcome.
Moor Art 1
Five alternate Wednesdays ~
(3 Jan), 6 Feb, 20 Feb, 6 March, 20 March, 3 April
An art course offering insight into innovative art projects, exploring many ways of using techniques/media. Critique of work, artist research, lively discussion are essential parts of these sessions. These courses have been well attended for over ten years now with some regulars being joined by new members. Courses are suitable for beginners as well as those with experience. You will not have missed anything as the first session was cancelled so it is just 5 sessions now at £175.
Our project this term will have students examine, through drawing, two separate sets of objects, one will be floral and the other more hard edged and contained. These studies will then be bought together into one major study with the objects integrating with one another. Composition and space frames will also be considered.
These pieces of work were carried out some years ago by my students and give a flavour of the project.
