I have two classes on offer which are both to run before Christmas. I am trying to clear the waiting list back log a little!
The first is Artists Studio Journal: A Designers workhorse starting October 24th, which is about Keeping a studio journal.
When some people read this they often think art journal. This course is not about creating an art journal that is a finished object in its own right. The emphasis is very much on using a working studio journal as part of a design process to produce something in fiber. The course contains design exercises and techniques and discusses how these might be applied to textiles. It is a course where students spend their time designing for textiles and working in their Studio Journal.
A studio journal is a place for catching ideas and developing them into designs. Unlike an Art journal which aims to be an aesthetic object in its own right an Artists Studio journal is a designers workhorse. The good news is that you do not have to know how to draw.
If your are interested follow the link to more of a class description, a requirements list and the magic “buy Now” button is there too! Once purchased you are in the Artists Studio Journal class.
GIMP is a FREE program that can be used to manipulate, retouch and edit photos. It can also be used as a design tool. This course written expressly for people who quilt, embroider and express themselves via fiber, but want to use a graphics program to design with.
GIMP is often compared to Photoshop as it can be used to edit and retouch photos, be a paint program and much more. This workshop while touching on these uses, has a main focus of using the program as a tool to develop designs that can be applied to fiber and textiles.
If you are interested follow the link. With this class do read the to class description, and make sure you have the skill levels to take it. Once you have purchased the GIMP for Textile Designers class you are registered.
