Collabor-8: An Introduction to Textiles

17 Jul 2018 - 07 Aug 2018

Explore textiles and design in this theoretical and hands-on, practical course led by Nottingham Contemporary resident artist Charlotte Tupper.

Using Pia Camil’s exhibition as a starting point, we will introduce you to different aspects of textile design, investigating colour, form, scale, pattern and composition to support you in developing visual ideas to create your own portfolio of works.


Free
17 Jul – 7 Aug (Every Tue for four weeks, 5-8pm)


Please note that you will have to commit to all four sessions, but we can be flexible in case you have to miss one or two.

This event is part of Collabor-8, Nottingham Contemporary’s Youth Programme and is open to anyone aged 15-25.
For any questions, you can email our Youth Programmer at raluca@nottinghamcontemporary.org
