So a few weeks ago I finally started my City & Guilds Level 3 in Textiles. I have been waiting over six months to get started and I was so excited / nervous. Anyway I have been for 2 classes (we meet a day every fortnight) and it is bloody brilliant. I am so excited about it, and enjoying it. I know it is early days but this is the first time I have done anything in depth that has a creative focus and I am loving it. I dropped art as soon as I could in school and in Textiles my pair of culottes ended up as a pencil case!
How times have changed.
Anyway, I thought I would share what I have done so far in my sketchbook. The first session was all about colour.
The rest of the pages I have been working on so far have been about my theme. I have to pick a main theme, and then a particular area as my focused theme. I chose London Colour as my main theme, and then I plan on using Street Art as my focused theme. I had so much fun putting these pages together over the past couple of days.
I had done some pages on Crazy Patchwork, but I wasn’t happy and pulled them out in a fit of annoyance. Silly idea as now my pages are not numbered correctly. I need to be less of a perfectionist or the book will have no pages at the end! So that will be my first and last time. I love sticking things in but I am struggling with how to represent processes and include notes without hating my writing.
Regardless of my writing I am very proud with how this sketchbook is progressing and I cannot wait to keep filling the pages.
I would love to know what you think.
