TEXTILE CREATIVITY AND EXPERIMENTATION COURSE

First of the 7 workshops (complementary but independent) that form the course “Creativity and Textile Experimentation” taught by Concha Romeu.

First we will work in a playful and intuitive way so after a brief reflection each student will put a NAME to their work. Then we will do it in reverse, we will start from an idea or CONCEPT to materialize it and shape it by choosing the right materials. The objective is to become aware that elements such as color, shape, texture and composition are the alphabet that allows us to communicate plastically.

DATE: 1 Saturday per month, 7 Saturdays (we will announce the dates shortly)

SCHEDULE: from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

AIMED AT: people 16 years and older.

DURATION: 3 hours

NUMBER ASSISTANTS: minimum 5 maximum 10

PLACE: The Paper Factory c / Buenavista 8 28012 Madrid

Description

7 complementary and independent workshops

Goals

  • Discover through practice your own creative abilities from a playful and prejudice-free attitude
  • Discover the expressive possibilities of textiles (fabrics, wool, threads) and the techniques that are their own (sew, embroider, weave), incorporating them into our own creative work, complementing and enriching it.No vamos a aprender ninguna técnica.

We care more about the path than the goal.

We do not intend to make works of “art”.

We will learn from our mistakes and enjoy with our findings.

Course Structure

7 independent sessions of 3 hours each and that work separately but at the same time complementary.

Each of the sessions or workshops is completed with a selection of Power Point images of artists whose works have to do with the subject.

Workshop 1. Improvise with fabrics: from intuitive play to awareness.

Workshop 2. Textile collage: With chance as an ally we discover beauty in chaos.

Workshop 3. Undo to re-do: The beauty of scars.

Workshop 4. Window, hole, hole: Show what is hidden to enrich reality.

Workshop 5. Biography1: My life as a story (artist’s book).

Workshop 6. Biography 2: My life as a puzzle, I am the sum of many.

Workshop 7. Woven with soul: The memory of objects.

Workshop structure

  • Brief presentation of the teacher and each student (who I am, what I do, what is my motivation).
  • Exercise of “warming up” on paper.
  • Reflection on the result.
  • Visualization of “inspiring” images of the work of professional artists.
  • I work with textile material following some guidelines according to the topic to be treated (each workshop is different).
  • Exhibition of the work done in the workshop, reflection, awareness and conclusions.

Workshop 1. Improvise with fabrics: from intuitive play to awareness

Goals

This first workshop has two parts: In the first one we will work in a playful and intuitive way with the material that I will provide to you and, after a brief reflection in which each student will put NAME to his work, we will work to the Reverse in the second exercise: based on an idea or CONCEPT they will try to materialize it and shape it by choosing the right materials.

What is the OBJETIVE? Be aware that elements such as color, shape, texture and composition are the alphabet that allows us to communicate plastically.
