Weaving rhythms
The fabric between process and creation: materials, inspiration, patterns


The general concept of rhythm is based on the division of time and space into variable forms and measures. Therefore, we can consider rhythm as a sensitive peculiarity that all arts have in common: from handicrafts to visual arts, poetry, music and architecture.
In the specific sector of textile craft production, the rhythm paces practical actions like gestures, movements, beats and pauses.
The endless design and planning variables of gesture and graphic and chromatic rhythms on the fabric surface will be studied in depth during our course. Together with lab activities, the students will reflect on the different methods to use time and space in the textile craftsmanlike activity since these aspects evoke rhythms, sounds, repetitions, pauses that combine the sense of sight, touch and hearing.

Topics discussed:
Inspiration sources drawn from local nature, culture and architecture.
Textile design of live graphic and chromatic rhythms.
Realisation of projects using suitable materials, weaves and techniques.

The general concept of rhythm is based on the division of time and space into variable forms and measures. Therefore, we can consider rhythm as a sensitive peculiarity that all arts have in common: from handicrafts to visual arts, poetry, music and architecture.
In the visual perception of the landscape, shadows and chiaroscuro characterise a large variety of images and unexpected visual rhythms and hidden details that the light brings out.
Moreover, when painting, brush strokes and repeated colour marks can create paced surfaces with different peculiarities: surfaces in relief, repetitions of regular, irregular marks, chromatic rhythms, drips and spots. All matter effects that underscore how the pictorial language is in constant evolution and is expanding its communication range.
In this course, each student can conceive his own visual story, tracking rhythmic marks on the paper representing the movement of his body in space.

Topics discussed:
Art practice in relation to the surrounding live space.
Visual perception of chromatic rhythms and different aesthetic harmonization techniques of a surface.
