February Workshop At The Sainsbury Centre

Enjoyed a busy workshop - twice - on Friday last week
It was the theme of Surfaces: Pattern and Texture
Students looked for patterns in the art and artefacts of the collection at SCVA, making lovely well observed drawings of details and repeated shapes

Next they used their pencils and erasers only to create the different textures on the surfaces of items they found


Once back in the studio, the students worked in pairs to double up and 're-draw' their shapes in collage, creating interesting textures

Finally they worked individually to make rubbings of their textures - back to monochrome after all that colour!
They chose their collages that transposed to rubbings with the most interesting and successful results and repeated these to create patterns through texture
