'Starry, Starry Night '
An environmental theme using reflections, shadows and light.

Module Five

The theme for this Module, Starry, Starry Night, includes reflections of light on water, the use of light in art, (particularly the painting of the same name by Van Gogh) and the way in which shadow and darker areas, give depth to a piece of work. The design elements of line and colour will be revisited and used to develop a good understanding of the importance of tonal values. Metallic fabrics and threads will be used. The layering and cut-through techniques, explored in Module Four will be further developed into a second resolved sample based on the theme. The use of translucent fabrics, voiles, organzas and sheers w6ill be developed around the theme and used for two resolved samples showing use of shadow techniques. The student will undertake research into and reflect on current trends in machine embroidery.
