My Year of Design THREE Online Course (Module 2)
My Year of Design THREE (MYoD3) is our third journey of thinking and making and offers a comprehensive online course in design for quilters and other textile lovers. Design is a language - a visual language which can help convey messages and which can help to create work which is visually and sensually pleasing.
MYoD3 continues the tradition of the previous MYoD publications in challenging you with playful, amusing and sometimes unexpected exercises. These exercises are accompanied by inspirational pictures, lots of background information (you could call this "design theory" if you were so inclined) and feedback on the pieces you produce based on MYoD3.
MYoD3 consists of three modules with six chapters each. This is the second module. While it is possible to sign up for Module 2 directly, we strongly recommend to work through Module 1 first!
In this second module, the following design elements and design principles will be covered:
Chapter 1: Shape
Chapter 2: Repetition
Chapter 3: Rhythm
Chapter 4: Colour II
Chapter 5: Contrast
Chapter 6: Composition II
The online course starts on 15 May 2017. You can start any time and work at your own pace. No deadlines, no hassle, no pressure! We will send out the first chapter to all registered participants on 15 May 2017. All subsequent chapters are sent out on demand, i.e. you tell us when you'd like to go on to the next chapter. The earliest possible date for sending out the chapters are 15 June 2017 for chapter 2, 15 July for chapter 3 etc.
Constructive feedback is provided by the Quilt around the World team for at least one piece for each chapter.
After receipt of chapter 6, you have at least a year to finish your work, send in pictures and get feedback.
