MATHEMATICAL DESIGN BASED CLASSES:

     

2) Alluding to Illusion (First taught at Quilt Expo Europa III) I have been doing a series of quilts based on a recolouring of the spools block (Taking The Liberty With Rainbows I - III, Red, Hot in Nepal, East West - Orient Expressed ) and researching optical effects generally. This is a worksheet based design class.

i) discovering the principles that cause optical effects

ii) developing optical effects in traditional blocks

iii) designing your own blocks

iv) with reference to how other artists tackle illusion (e.g. Escher, Riley, Vaserely, quilters)

a) worksheets alone - min 3 hrs

b) with fabric ideas - min 6hrs
