mark: a visible impression
This workshop is an opportunity to take part in an exploration of the expressive working surface, by finding a way to allow the cloth and the surface stitchery to communicate in your work.
We will consider how to add another dimension with unique stitching, to create focus and complexity, to transform the surface in many ways, how to manipulate and alter your cloth, make your materials work for you, use layers to create depth and illusion, how to produce imagery and text on fabric to enhance the narrative quality of your work.
We will check out images and samples of work by various artists that will interest and inspire you. Then you can apply any of the techniques discussed to create your own example of original design, or one based on the tutors samples.
