Challenge for June/July

Our next challenge is “Texture”.This is a great opportunity to explore texture from many perspectives. Our sense of touch is sensitive to the feel of surfaces…wood can be smooth or rough…rocks and many other elements will give us the same sensation.

The following is a definition of texture when it refers to fine arts from Dictionary.com

  • “the characteristic visual and tactile quality of the surface of a work of art resulting from the way in which the materials are used.”
  • the imitation of the tactile quality of represented objects.

No matter the interpretation, the quilts that will be revealed at the end of July will be exciting to see and interpret.

About spaceandtimecreativity

I have embarked on a Certificate Course at Distant Stitch, this is exciting as many years ago when I began to find my artistic voice I studied under Jean Lange in Adelaide, South Australia.Jean taught me that anything was possible (well almost) in stitch. Over the years I have done traditional embroidery, moved into other mediums such as quilting (Art Quilts), beading and many other related crafts. My reason for returning to embroidery is my love of stitch, I love the organic feel of stitches and how it adds another level to my Art Quilts, so I wish to explore how stitch can be used in design and finished work. I am now adding another course.....Sketchbook and I am hoping this will encourage me to keep sketchbooks for my Art Quilt projects.
