What a brilliant course with Bobby Britnell. I'm never disappointed in her classes, she always makes me surprise myself and feel that anything is possible if I push that little bit harder.
It invariably starts with drawing in her classes and this one really taxed my brain. Being able to carry on working each evening meant I could put more effort into it. It's not perfect by any means but I can chart the the learning process taking place when I study it.
Lots of little quiet moments in my work book were produced over the four days and printing blocks were made from our drawings and again worked back into our journals.
We kept to our individual colour palettes throughout to provide a cohesive body of work.
Gradually the pages filled up with ideas.
The third day we moved on to printing fabrics and learning about design techniques to create pattern and contrast.
Finally, samples were stitched, refined and critiqued. I then set my own objectives that I will take forward from this course to produce further work.
Great tutor and a great bunch of like minded colleagues (especially Rose who I know if we lived closer could become a good friend) and really great to be on a course that everyone took seriously and buckled down to get the most out of. I was inspired by the beautiful work produced and will think about the imagery produced by everyone for a long time to come.
