Facilitator: Gizella K Warburton
During this course we will be considering the line through observations, mark making and interpretation. Using these start points we will explore linear and spatial relationships, and different ways of introducing “content” and detail with fibres and yarns. This course is suitable for those new to drawing or making, or for experienced artists wanting to revisit or refresh their practice.
Event time: Fri 31st Mar 2023 at 4:00pm - Sun 2nd Apr 2023 at 4:00pm
Observing the line through drawn marks, we will experiment with different interpretive techniques to find our own linear language. This will be created 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 develop these weavings into dimensional compositions and see where this leads us.
With supportive mentoring and shared inspiration, these sessions are designed to encourage participants to notice detail, challenge usual approaches, and be aware of your creative responses; developing the confidence to take risks with ideas and nurture your own artistic voice.
