Location: Discovery Centre Lobby, Woody Point
Process of Design – Problem Solving
The process of design – is problem solving. Great design is the difference between a nice piece and a great piece. It’s making all the parts connect. What are the functional requirements versus your aesthetic wishes? Reviewing and being aware of all the elements and principles of design will improve your design process and work. We will refresh the basics and then take a closer look at individual design methods and what to do when one “gets stuck”. Participants are encouraged to bring existing designs to work through, or come empty handed and develop a new concept. The workshop is open to beginners and established craftspeople.
I am currently an instructor for the College of the North Atlantic’s Textile: Craft and Apparel Design program in St. John’s, NL teaching Design, Drawing, Colour Theory and Craft History. I hold an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Fine Art, and based my education in textiles, namely weaving. My other work with NGOs locally and internationally has given me the opportunity to use design in a larger and broader sense to encourage healthy and sustainable life practices.
