Come and join the growing happy band of Make it Personal students. Overall. It’s a progressive training course for finding your own voice as a textile artist, culminating in the opportunity to exhibit your work if you wish.
This is year 1 of a two-year course, taught via a series of 6 modules in each year. Each module last for 8 weeks and is delivered via a mix of live streams and videos - between 8 - 16 each module, each approx 2 hours. All videos and streams are recorded and kept in the gruop, to allow catching up and rewatching as needed. Each week you will also receive a fully inllustrated PDF file to download and keep
Year 1 concentrates solely on surface design techniques to create materials. As textile artists, these materials are our palette. They are also a lot of fun to create, and fun is the main emphasis in year one. I want you to lose adult self-consciousness and return to the uninhibited joy of creating that we all felt as young children. I believe that it is via this child artist, that our own style can be accessed and discovered. So, although light-hearted, year 1 was essential and serious in its purpose.
In year two, we turn the serious business of creating art! 5 modules teaching a variety of design approaches, are followed by a free choice module, where you can let your own artist free, to create as they chose
After completing your 2 years, there is an ongoing learning and exhibiting group for you to join if you wish. The MIP students develop close bonds and working relationships, and many want to stay together to continue their journey.
Each module last 2 months and costs £140. You do not have to staty on the course, but will lose access to the gourp and videos if you leave part way through a year. At the end of each year, a new group is started, with the year 1 group kept open until 6 months after the end of year 2
Your first payment here reserves your place and partially pays for your first 2 month module. You will be billed for the balance in Dec 2022
