What you will learn

A flexible mini project based on folding formats will provide a framework for developing ideas taking you into practical sampling on cloth using simple painted and printed techniques. Elements of hand stitch can be used as a joining mechanism, to applique and to add further texture. Experimentation will lead to a personal choice of outcome which may be a collection of related samples based on progressive sampling, or a folded composition. More advanced students will be able to apply the techniques to a self- directed outcome

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Explore techniques to develop a mini project based on a folding format
  • Use simple printed and painted techniques to develop surfaces.
  • Mix print and elements of hand stitch according to personal choice.
  • Work towards either a supported or self- directed outcome.
