cut and shuffle

24 February – 27 February 2013 Monday to Thursday 9:00am to 4:00pm

To warm up, a few exercises using black and white papers will encourage you to explore possible design alternatives. Then you will create several experimental and inherently random collage compositions, with paper and colouring media. Through a process of cutting, re arranging, and cropping these collages, you will isolate design diagrams that can be translated into a series of hand stitched samples of an abstract nature. Then you will be able to join these panels together to form a concertina display booklet.
We will consider : compositional elements, contrast and relationship, personal style and interpretation, and the mark of your stitch.
