Focus on Texture

Lecture

There are lots of ways to organize your thinking about design. Every book has a slightly different twist on it. In this presentation, you will see how I think about design, the six elements that we use as tools to contribute to the coherence of your overall composition. Do these elements create the kind of balance, the amount of variety and the unity, that you want? Does it ultimately enhance the meaning you intend to convey? To this end, I will focus on the element of texture, one that is a particularly essential part of what quilters and fiber artists get to use. It is an integral part of the meaning we put in our work and we need to pay attention to what functions it performs for us.
