Enrol in Quilting Open Studio
Course Code: ARTS2331
Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners.
Bring any quilt-related project to develop; be it a new design or an unfinished piece never quite resolved to your satisfaction. Work on your unique independent project(s), problem-solving, testing new design concepts and developing a stronger sense of your design aesthetic - all within a supportive, open studio environment. Presentations and discussions will review basic design principles and revisit a myriad of surface design techniques. Methods of incorporating your personal experiences, style and unique stories into your designs and encouraging the development of a personal profile through journalling will be examined. All of this will be interwoven with one-on-one consultations and positive guidance regarding the directions and concepts of your work. Morning roundtable discussions and presentations will bring together the ideas, questions, interests and unique contributions of each member of the class opening up fascinating new paths and directions of mutual interest. Be prepared for an immersion in productive "serious play" and critical thinking that will provide a deeper understanding of your present aesthetic and chart a meaningful path for future endeavours.
