Before I sign off for Christmas, I thought that I would give a "Sneaky Peek" at what I am currently working on related to the last two blog posts... Masterclass 1 and Masterclass 2.
Over the next few days I am planning and putting together all the information and visuals for a workshop in the new year at the Whistle Art Stop in Northumberland. This workshop shall be the first of a series intended to sit alongside the manual that I want to create. I have entitled this first workshop "A Rose is a Rose .. is a Pattern" ©dimarsart 2012.
Here is a brief overview of the content.
"A Rose is a Rose is a Pattern"..... How can a Rose be a Cushion?
A short surface design project illustrating in 10 stages how the rose in you garden can be used as inspiration for a pattern for textiles. I shall instruct on how to create using hand painting techniques and basic materials. The 10 stages shall include translation, various styles that can be applied, actual paint techniques, sketching, different formats and repeats, colour mixing and application, presentation and product application. Each stage shall have projects for the students to work on before moving to the next stage.
I shall sign off now.... I hope that everyone has a fabulous Christmas break....... more details on the workshop soon.
