What Will be Taught:
How do we begin to interact with our material? For e.g. how can we begin to respond to paper?
When we look at or touch paper, we have already started to ‘know’ its body. Through our eyes and fingers we are already receiving its colour, its luster or lack of it, the roughness or smoothness of its surface- its texture. As we proceed in this manner we begin to realize the connectedness of paper to our own bodies.
The workshop Paper, Fabric and You aims at opening up our imagination to inspire new ideas and ways of seeing and working creatively. In the process, we will explore techniques such as Collage making, Cutting and Splicing, Piercing and Peeling, Tearing and Stitching, and others.
What will be provided:
Papers, Fabric, Threads, Scissors, Brushes, Glue, Bluetac, Pins, Pencils, Erasure, Blocks for printing, Needles, Rags, Rough paper, Rulers, Cutters , Paints and Brushes, Palettes, instruments for piercing holes like stylus, nails etc.
