Kick start creativity by taking part in this exciting ONLINE workshop. Monday 8th May 2017 for 3 weeks
Develop your drawing style and most importantly your ‘perception’ of drawing. Learn to draw in a purposeful way, one that will actually support tactile discoveries.
As with all of my workshops you won’t create a bag/scarf/cushion but you will have a resource of drawing development techniques and the skills to translate your drawings into textile surfaces – these will transform the way you work.
Delivered in a series of sessions you will have access to information for 3 weeks, it makes sense for you to clear space in your calendar to devote to your work; a minimum of 2 clear days or the equivalent [approx 16 hours]. So you may be busy at the beginning of the workshop, but take on board the information, ready to get practical by the final week – you structure your time to suit your own scenario.
- Stages of seeing
- Make your mark
- Tactile translations
Delivered via videos, text, illustrations and speedy tutor feedback. For me the latter makes a major difference when taking an online workshop. This is not a workshop where you sign up and are left to your own devices [however you can choose that route if you wish] I don’t want my students to feel isolated and I want this personal approach to define my workshops. This is personal content that can’t be copied or imitated!!
This workshop was originally a 2 day face to face workshop with me but online you get a whole 3 weeks for a similar price with no travel/accommodation expenses. To consider whether an ONLINE workshop is for you please check out the DEBATE pages where you will read about other experiences. Note: I would suggest that this workshop isn’t suitable for complete beginners.
You will need a fast broadband speed to watch the instruction videos successfully and have sufficient IT skills to respond to emails, follow links, comment on blogs and upload images and engage in a private Facebook group too.
A supplies list is sent out 2 weeks prior to the start date. As well as a range of drawing media and over head projector, I shall be demonstrating on a sewing machine with free motion capabilities and an embellisher [needle punch felting machine].
If you have an old straight stitching machine that will be fine – You will learn how to maximise its potential. I offer alternatives for the embellisher too – there are hand help options. Note; a sewing machine and embellisher are desirable but not essential for this workshop and alternative hand methods will be illustrated – any queries, do get in touch.
