This eight-week course explores a range of pre-digital surface design techniques from around the world. While being introduced to both the historical and contemporary contexts, students will learn several different ways to create pattern on paper and textiles. We will use a variety of dyes, inks and resists to explore the meaning of pattern and how it can be applied in a larger wearable and decorative art context. Leaving room to explore and experiment, students will have access to of the necessary equipment to gain a fundamental knowledge of each pattern design technique and will be encouraged to incorporate pattern into their own practice.
