B.C. SAQA member Janet Scruggs wants to share her new online workshop with you! She writes:
Have you ever wanted to create your own designs?
Does it seem daunting, maybe even impossible - you have no idea where to start?
Introduction to Design workshop will teach you several methods for creating designs. Methods which can be used over and over again to create original designs from any source of inspiration. You will find that not only is it easy, but it’s fun!
The workshop is comprised of 6 modules. These include warm up exercises and design exercises to lead you in creating a minimum of 14 of your own original designs.
It also covers the elements of art, design principles, interpreting your designs in textiles and stitch, material considerations, theme and technique based designs. The workshop uses both video and print materials.
You will learn how to use many types of inspiration with different techniques to produce original designs.
For example, how did I go from the inspiration on the piece of linen (left) to the bird design (right)? It may seem impossible, but one of the methods we use in this class will show you how!
|Inspiration: Block-printed linen|
"L'Orage" (The Storm) designed by
Eric Bagge (1929) and
manufactured by Lucien Bouix
|Design: Reverse applique and stitched bird on microfibre|
cleaning cloth, using dyed, inked and foiled Lutradur (R),
shisha mirror and commercial trim.
