Design for Artisans

Design for Artisans

Understand the basic elements and concepts that apply to every aspect of designing objects and art. Through a series of two-dimensional exercises, gain skill in visual organization, balance, repetition and rhythm using line, shape, texture, value and color. As your eye develops, your designs for furniture, clothing, quilts, surfaces and abstract forms will gain in beauty and sophistication. All levels welcome.

You’ve been learning skills – how to join wood, finesse a seam, bind a book. Now increase the beauty and sophistication of your work. What creates balance (or imbalance), pleasure, fascination, depth?
