Workshop Proposals
Installation For A Play: Takes the form of a backdrop and set for a school play. The design is developed from abstract drawings based on aspects of the plot, using paint and 3D cardboard sculpture.
Cacti Furniture/Plant People/3D Textiles: This project approaches the design process from a highly experimental angle, encouraging drawing and gathering ideas in an unusual way from using plant forms as source material. Forms, textures and assemblage techniques are developed through experimentation using limited materials. This may lead to individual or collaborative work.
