A series of 5 Friday workshops in Castlemaine.
24 April – 22 May 2015, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Thinking and building in 3D – Art Textiles and beyond… Experience new ways of thinking and making! There are many textile and basketry techniques available (and many more we can invent) that lend themselves to sculptural outcomes. Beginning with presentations of inspirational 3D Art Textiles of the World (both traditional and contemporary) we will explore a variety of approaches to sculptural construction in this hands-on course. Content will also be shaped by participants’ sampling, reflection, current interests and observations. Bring your own skills and experience! Experiment and cross pollination are central to these workshops. A myriad of methods and materials begin to suggest themselves the more broadly we think, and the outcomes can range from the miniature to the architectural. Materials list provided on enrolment.
