The aim of the second workshop at CTET was to generate original motifs and introduce the principles of pattern design. In the morning we did a range of drawing exercises focusing on different ways of collecting information. Some of the exercises were challenging as they are totally different from the normal experience of learning. For example drawing different musical sounds (Beethoven and Abba).
The afternoon was busy developing patterns from motifs taken from the drawings and we were really happy with many of the results! The students once again worked hard and had a positive attitude.
The intitial pattern ideas will be developed into coloured pattern designs for the exhibition at the end of the residency so watch this space!
