“Manipulated Textiles; Mark, pleat, fold, form”
October 13th & 14th, 2018 10am – 4pm £200
10 spaces available
Explore both formal and more organic possibilities of pleating and folding as a means of creating interesting surfaces and more 3D forms. Using paper as a starting point for ideas, focus on black and white, pleating, folding and stitching, knots and ties. Use these techniques to explore the distortion of mark and shaping and structuring of fabric surfaces. Create a repertoire of samples for ideas, structures and surfaces which can later be applied to your own art projects, combined with embroidery or quilting, or taken into wearables.
You will need to bring a sewing machine and supplies list will be provided
