Big news for textile design students! We spent the weekend filming short course tutor, Dominique L’Olive as she created teaching resources for an updated format of our popular Drawing and Painting for Fabric and Textile Design (online) short course.
We know that online learning provides students around the world with a unique and interactive approach to learning art and design in the Central Saint Martins style, so we have been working hard to develop even more innovative and effective ways to connect with interior designers and fashion designers.
The resources for this course allow us to share the excitement of the CSM textile studios, and demonstrate new techniques we’ve never taught online before, including;
- Wax resist
- Painting with gesso
- Painting with bleach (yes, you read that right!)
- Painting with masking fluid
- Torn paper techniques
All these techniques can be combined (along with mark-making, stencilling, stamping, etc.) to create unique patterns and designs.
Here is some work students achieved in a one-hour session on the filming day.
These new resources will allow online students to experiment more widely and create even more innovative results, which is what study at Central Saint Martins is all about. The new format for Drawing and Painting for Textile Design is available from 22 January, and includes;
- Live sessions with Dominique L’Olive
- Video demonstrations of a wide range of techniques for you to explore
- Resources to inspire you and support your work
- Practical weekly projects to focus your creativity
- Discussion forums for support and guidance
By the end of the course, you will have developed and refined a personal style and produced one collection of designs which could go into a portfolio or be taken forward and applied in interior design or fashion contexts.
