Textiles 2 - Course - Online
The course aims to develop greater understanding of techniques and a more individual approach to visual ideas and design; explore in greater depth the historical and ethnographic context of textiles.
This course extends the work done in Textiles 1: A Creative Approach, and helps you develop your own ideas and designs to a higher level. You will gain a greater understanding of your preferred textile techniques, become more self-reliant as a designer and develop a more personal approach to design through a mixture of structured and self-generated projects. Several new areas are covered, particularly dyes and dyeing, and these allow you to experiment with colour. You will also be investigating textiles from other cultures and twentieth century textile movements.
- Natural and man-made fibres
- Identification of fibres
- Dyeing and screen printing
- Designing a scarf
- Twentieth century designs.
