Weaving courses
Textiles: structure and tactility
Textile creation encompassing the tactile and the visual
.

Theme
Nowadays new technologies allow us to increase our visual perception but at the same time limit the role of the tactile experience. However in the field of textile creation sufficient space is given over to appreciating the skilled craftsmanship and to creating textiles from tactile effects.
This is the design theme of our courses scheduled for 2016, i.e. the need to recapture and relive the experience of physical and tactile contact with the world of fabrics often considered as a second skin.

Goal of the course
During the course activity we will explore the world of materials and textile techniques with the aim of creating exciting fabrics that will have an inherently tactile nature.
If commonly the visual weave and the tactile quality to date have been considered separately, this course will help you to discover the living language of connection to therefore see textiles as a tool of visual and tactile knowledge combined.
The aim of this course is to increase the sensory experience of participants, to broaden their technical knowledge and to increase their artistic and creative skills.

Techniques and materials
In this course we will be creating fabrics, playing with materials, exploring surfaces and different tactile-visual effects, combining functional and sensory quality, enhancing and experiencing in particular the multitude of
sensations and emotions that a fabric can communicate.

Subjects covered
In this course we will be creating fabrics, playing with materials, exploring surfaces and different tactile-visual effects, combining functional and sensory quality, enhancing and experiencing in particular the multitude of sensations and emotions that a fabric can communicate.
Upon conclusion of the course, the items produced will be appropriately paginated and exhibited in our atelier for a final presentation.
All the tools and materials useful for the creation and impagination of your work will be available at our studio.

Art Courses
Painting: structure and tactility
Pictorial practice encompassing the tactile and the visual


Theme
Nowadays new technologies allow us to increase our visual perception but at the same time limit the role of the tactile experience. However contemporary artistic creation has for some time now experimented going beyond ocular vision and thereby enhancing the tactile experience.
This will be the design theme of our painting courses that are scheduled for 2016.

Goal of the course
If tactile and visual quality are commonly treated as separate elements, this course will help you to rediscover the living language of connection between the visual and the tactile texture through the hands-on experience of painting.
Participants will be invited to consider artistic creation as an activity that incorporates the values of the past to explore new forms of expression. Participants will be offered the use of traditional materials and tools with an opportunity to explore the use of mixed techniques and new media.
The objective of this course is to increase the sensory experience of participants, to broaden their technical knowledge in the expressive use of materials and to increase their artistic and creative skills.

Programme
The course activity involves the design and implementation of a series of artistic artefacts created on paper or on other similar media with the following techniques: tempera, watercolour, acrylic, collage, mixed techniques, photography, etc.
Attendees will be able to enjoy the environment conducive to the realisation of their creations in close contact and exchange with the other course participants. They will in any case be personally supported by the tutor at all phases of creation of their work.

Techniques and materials
During the research phase the use of appropriate techniques and materials that have an inherent tactile quality will be encouraged. This will allow participants to create new shapes by combining textures, reliefs and colours in a sensory narration with numerous novel tactile sensations.
Upon conclusion of the course, the items produced will be appropriately paginated and exhibited in our atelier for a final presentation.
Each participant will be able to bring with them all the tools and materials useful to the accomplishment of their work, otherwise they are welcome to use the materials available at our atelier.
