Abstract [en]

Surface pattern and ornaments has been around us for thousands of years. Pattern design and pattern making is and always has been an important human activity. Regardless of the cultural aspects that exist, there is a timeless systematic concerning pattern. It is all about the relationship between figure and background and the way the elements are organised on a surface. When designing pattern, different design variables are used in order to achieve a certain expression. Design variables are the designers ‘tools’, the extensional information needed to express intentions within a textile. A textile designer is presented with an almost endless number of design variables to handle in the design process. It could be colour, form, line, texture, volume etc. Designing surface patterns in spatial contexts with a totally different design variable could be challenging. What kind of thinking is required, what material to apply, and which type of expression do you wish to accomplish?

This workshop introduces alternative design variables as tools in the design process. How does it affect the textile design process if abstract spatial determinations are employed as a design variable?
