Course dates: October 19th & 20th 2017 (Thursday & Friday)
Using papers and fabrics this course extends the idea of what drawing can be. Over the two days the aim is to make quick works involving all different types of paper and fabrics. You will be discovering different ways of using these materials by folding, cutting, ripping, layering, attaching, assembling and sewing. In conjunction with the fabric and paper you will include paints, glitter and pigments. Even other liquids such as gesso and food dyes can be used to incorporated into the marks and images. The starting point will be the physical act of working with the paper and fabric. There will be tutor led demonstrations to help with ideas and personal direction. Work can be small and large and extend into different shapes made on tables and the floor.
Artists who will be looked at for inspiration will be: Louise Bourgeois, Issey Miyake, Lucio Fontana, Sam Gilliam, Mike Kelley and Robert Rauchenberg .
