TEXTILE ARTS COURSES: SUMMER SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS, 2017 at St. Lawrence College, KINGSTON Campus



SURFACE DESIGN AND STITCH

ARTS 110, A full credit component of the TEXTILE ARTS  Program at

  St. Lawrence College, Kingston Campus

 SUMMER SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS

May 30-July 6, 2017

(Tuesday and Thursday 6-9 pm)



Our students come to the collage, often with years of sewing and design experience, wanting to enhance their skills and work creatively to start an all new body of work using the many new techniques shared during the six weeks together with a community of students with similar goals. Sharing is encouraged, and  there is always a relaxed and  a collegial environment where support and growth are the goal.

Every student is encouraged to take his or her own path using the class as a jumping off point for their own new work. This course will guide you as a beginner or seasoned artist to create all new work in a relaxed classroom setting using fibre as your medium.

Exhibition ready work is a goal for many of our students and we will cover all aspects from paper layout, planning and selecting fabrics, embellishments, threads and framing/finishing techniques.

Machine work as well as hand stitch studies focusing on all new work are planned.  Students wishing to work within the guidelines of tradition may certainly work on quilt projects, and those who are brave enough to experiment may go one step farther to create new fabric in colors and dye patterns for use in their personal and original designs for art quilts and wall art or wearables.


We love to have all new students in the course, and there are no course prerequisites. St Lawrence  always welcomes returning students wanting to work within the context of shared studio time with like-minded friends. Every student will benefit from the focused classroom creativity and shared techniques.

Notes:
* Course components include the development of personal inventories of fibre samples using
your stash and collections of other fabrics in  project specific materials throughout the 
6 weeks we will spend together in the classroom.. May 30-July 6th, 2017.

* Be inspired to try new techniques and love machine stitching, and no - you do not
have to bring your machines to class unless weather permits, and stitching at home is encouraged.

*Whether you love to design and stitch pieces that use your own hand painted and dyed fabrics,

or bring together a wonderful stash of fabrics you have been accumulating and want to use,
this is a class that will help you take steps toward those goals!

COMPLEX CLOTH

ARTS 113, Creating Fabrics with Dyes and Pigments

A full credit component of the TEXTILE ARTS  Program at

  St. Lawrence College, Kingston Campus

 SUMMER SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS

JULY 31-August 4, 2017, Brockville Campus


 
This full week M-F  course is for those with a passionate interest in fibre arts as a vehicle for artistic expression and creation of functional art and fine textile design. Students will study complex processes for fabric colouration and dye work, including pole wrapped Shibori and Arashi patterning, explore complete a series of Indigo studies, develop a personal inventory of colour studies during our week together and more.

On-campus residence is available for those who would like to use this experience as a “get away” for personal development of a new stash of fabrics for work as the year progresses, exhibition calls are on the calendar and you just need a time to focus on your new work. Machine play is welcome, and the studio is open 8 am through 10 pm each day.

Our students are looking to acquire new techniques while at the same time further hone existing skills and translate them into dynamic creations. You are encouraged to bring along works in progress, sketchbooks filled with ideas, and plans for work that is waiting to take form but may need encouragement to be released into reality.

Your fabric/stitching supplies will be coming with you from home. (Supplies list with paid registration).

You will receive a comprehensive set of course handouts and some project based tools and supplies will be available in the classroom as a part of the Instructor’s teaching package. 

Notes:

So whether you love to design and stitch pieces that use your own hand painted and dyed fabrics, or bring together a wonderful stash of fabrics you have been accumulating and want to use, this is a class that will help you take steps toward those goals!
