Abstracting Still Life (1 day)
Tuesday 24th August 2021
Venue Swansea Museum Victoria Rd, Swansea SA1 1SN 10 – 4
Maximum number in class 17
With still life as a starting point, you will learn to create a bold design using mixed media. Using primary and secondary colours and the method inspired by Matisse’s cut outs (described as painting with scissors) the image will be built up.
You are asked to bring a selection of personal items to the class and these will be source of inspiration for your design work for the first couple of hours of the class. You will use mixed media and the scissors on paper to move into a completed design ready to be translated with fabric and stitch.
The afternoon will be spent piecing together and cutting out suitable fabrics to re-create the design, then we can add contrasting threads and learning stitches to create a vibrant and interesting piece of artwork personal to yourself.
Requirements list will be sent on receipt of booking
