Creative Design Workshop 1: Textures, Abstracts + Geometrics

with Rachel MacHenry

Tuition: $220.00 + $30.00 materials fee + HST
Maximum 8 participants

In this experimental workshop, you will explore a wide range of creative mark-making and texturing techniques including rubbings, sponging, spattering, combing and layering to create a series of original surfaces. Using these hand-made surfaces, you will develop various geometric patterns, such as stripes, dots, blocks and chevrons. We will look at basic repeating structures and developing a colour palette. You will come away with a series of texture, abstract and geometric ideas, motifs and designs on paper that you can use for many textile applications. All art materials will be provided at the workshop, including a soft cover sketchbook for your designs. All levels of experience are welcome.
