'Between the Lines'
As mentioned in the last newsletter Julia Triston has booked her flight from Denmark and IS COMING. There is still time if you want to book on her course.
Last year I was offering a self-study on line course called 'Inspired by Line and Tone' and this workshop that Julia is offering will follow on so well. Many of you did this course with me so maybe have another think and see if this two days away with Julia, in beautiful Shropshire, may suit your current needs.
Effective use of ‘Line’ is one of the most important design considerations in textile art, and compositions have more impact when this element is expressed visually and intentionally. During this busy two-day course you will investigate ‘Line’ through a series of design and stitch exercises, and develop ways of working with papers, paints, fabrics and threads to explore this essential element. You will experiment with ink, collage paper and cloth backgrounds, then further embellish these with linear marks in print, hand embroidery and/or machine stitch.
The emphasis will be placed on making lots of small samples to fill a sketchbook (some of which will be print or stitch ‘sketches’) which can be used as an aide memoire for future work, but there will also be scope to make a larger composition if preferred.
