Why do cultures around the world communicate identity through pattern? Why do our brains attempt to recognise patterns within chaos? These questions underpin Pattern and Print, applying a range of questions - from the cultural to the neurological - to design thinking. Through this course students will develop technical and conceptual skills relating to a range of printing processes and to explore the use of pattern systems. Through research and experimentation students will develop skills and knowledge relating to the rich historical, social and cultural meanings embedded in these processes and produce creative and conceptual projects. This course exposes students to pattern/printmaking on cloth and to the pattern-making involved in turning two-dimensional surfaces designs into three-dimensional objects.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate creative and critical exploration, experimentation and integration of ideas, materials and techniques, through class and individual projects;
- apply a range of introductory technical skills relevant to visual arts and the discussed topics;
- identify historical and theoretical contexts in response to studio projects; and
- communicate reflective and critical approaches through the creative process.
School of Art & Design studio courses have a limited enrolment capacity. Students are advised to enrol as early as possible to maximise the opportunity of securing a place.
