Using the Found: Text, Paper and Image: Cas Holmes

 

AIMS OF COURSE:

Artists always make reference to other images and narrative. The primary focus of this workshop is to explore text and image as a means of visual communication. Working with paper and fabric scraps this course looks use of found materials and the use of text/image/writing both as a design element and as a means for informing work and the development of new ideas. This exploratory approach to textiles using paper-based techniques is an introduction to the tutor’s own approaches to making surfaces as a base for stitch or other creative projects and can be adapted to your own visual arts practice.

 

WHAT STUDENTS SHOULD ACHIEVE:

Experimental pieces resulting from this creative exploration could be used as a starting point for textile based work and mixed media, collage and stitched works.

TEACHING METHOD:

A combination of demonstrations and discussion in a workshop based course where students will be encouraged to work individually in applying techniques, and develop ideas in mixed media. Samples will be available to look at and the course ends with an open discussion of ideas and process in relation to the work produced.

 

GENERAL TIMETABLE:

Day 1:  Writing and creating mark making, on paper and cloth

Day 2: Looking at ways of working with the papers and cloth pieces produced to date focusing on use of the use of text/image.

Machining over printed text.

Ways of joining pieces together  building towards textured and layered surfaces

Bringing the work together practical look at how you could start developing ideas further showing examples of how I have applied techniques

 

 

STUDENT PREPARATION FOR COURSE:

Bring images for inspiration and one or two images of previous work (so I can get some idea of you practice) Photocopy images and photocopies of text. Themes to look for:
