Exploit the subtleties of near blacks and near whites, fabrics and surfaces, line and mark through print, stitch, bonding and assemblage whilst exploring ideas of the Trace. Insert a pop of colour or even a metallic moment through the use of foils. Emphasis will be placed on mark making and surface qualities and contrasts, and how these can be capitalised on to take your ideas forward working from initial exploratory drawings and experiments into a range of textile materials and approaches. Sample contrasts and compositional ideas for future work, or work towards a finished item, according to individual goals.
