Textiles, Paper and Text


Jett Clover
In this workshop we will work with both paper and fabric and the integration of these two materials. A focus will be the use of text as a visual means of communication and work with non-traditional ‘tools’ for writing and mark making.
 

Through a variety of exercises we will explore visual and physical layering and experiment with different collage techniques. The handling of materials – the cutting, tearing, overlapping and arranging bits and pieces into a whole – reinforces the importance of the process. This spontaneous hands-on way of working helps developing an intuitive feeling for composition.

 
We will further deal with collage in an art historical context and explore the concept of recycling, copy rights, letting go of artistic control and the ‘art of taking away’.
