Dancing Light and Layered Shadow
Using the rich and beautiful environment of Préniac with its swimming pool and nearby lakes, as well as reflections in glass, we will concentrate on responding to fleeting images, reflections, dancing light and constantly shifting shadows as the starting point for this workshop.
Following a series of initial exercises to stimulate our ideas and imagination, we will work with mono-print on semi-transparent papers and fabrics to create a series of highly individual and atmospheric layered pieces.
Students will be supported by individual tutorials to develop their experimental ideas into more resolved work using print, stitch and shadow applique techniques working with hand or machine as the student prefers.
