Using the Found; Of Cloth, Pattern and Clothing
14/08/2015@9:30 am - 16/08/2015@4:00 pm
A three day workshop hosted by international tutor Cas Holmes making use of ‘green thinking’ as a means to stimulating creativity – not just by recycling old fabric or vintage fabric, but by completely altering it through a variety of experimental techniques exploring the character and qualities of old textiles (shirts, aprons, children’s clothes, old lace) as a surface for working.
What students will achieve:
Experimental pieces resulting from this creative exploration using clothing waste and patterned fabrics as a base could be used as a starting point for textile based work and mixed media, collage and stitch.
Gaining confidence in working from their own resource material, they will achieve a greater insight into using colour and design to express their personal ideas.More Information
