Designing with Collage

2-daagse workshop o.l.v. Eszter Bornemisza

The workshop is about layering fabric, paper and sheers aiming to create personal compositions. Sources of inspiration and themes will be discussed and ways of translating them into the language of textiles. Students will be guided to apply fabrics of various qualities and combine them with newspaper and hot cut motives. Basic design principals will be discussed and practiced through a variety of exercises helping students to develop th eir individual voices. The end result will be several small collages.

Spoken language: English
