* The confidence to experiment with materials and create start points for future making
This course is suitable for those new to drawing or making, or for experienced artists wanting to revisit or refresh their practice. Observing the line through drawn marks, we will experiment with different interpretive techniques to find our own linear language. This will be extended through material play; manipulating yarns, threads, cloth and paper into woven samples. Becoming aware of the detail and nuance in surface, line and space, we will see where this leads us.
