Starting with a simple, effective and very easy collage exercise on paper, using old magazines and oil pastels. Developing further with the process into a small mixed media painting/artwork , which can then be the starting point for a stitched textile piece. Enabling students to feel confident developing their own ideas into designs on paper and into sketchbooks, before translation into textiles. Using the Artwork that we have developed in the easy collage exercise, we will select fabrics that correspond in colour and pattern. Using the shapes and colours in your Artwork, we will cut them out in fabric pieces, constructing a Textile with areas of applique and areas of stitch . . . as in my examples.
