GLADYS PAULUS: SAMPLES: A LIBRARY OF IDEAS 5 days workshop October 03 to 07, 2024
3 October - 7 October
During this workshop, you will make a series of 2-D felt pieces from which small samples (approximately 15 x 15cm) are selected. These will form the jumping off point for a deeper exploration of felt making techniques and effects, as well as contrast and composition, and become the basis for a very personal line of inquiry. This workshop is not about achieving a particular outcome, but rather about the joy of responding in the moment and learning through play, trial and “error”. It is intended to give you the freedom and time to explore, experiment that is so often lacking in our daily life, and to deepen your understanding of the medium. You will develop the beginnings of a reference library of techniques and ideas to enable future projects, which can continue to grow at home. A wide range of materials may be incorporated into the samples, and you will be encouraged to think outside the box.
