About the Book
Tara challenged her students to create with the theme “Mystery, Mastery and Discovery” in mind and invited them to explore and develop their own works as inspired by some of the great art eras, such as abstract expressionism, Bauhaus, the art and crafts movement, pop art, and more.
Foreword by Tara:
Welcome to "Mystery, Mastery and Discovery" – an exhibition that invites you to explore these pages through the eyes of our Art and design students. We've cast a spotlight on artists, both from the past and the present, and harnessed those inspirations to create personal pieces using the versatile gel plate as our primary tool.
Fibre Arts Take Two produce beautifully crafted online courses, documentaries and interviews from the world's best fibre and mixed media artists. Our mission is to capture the feeling and recreate the intimacy of working with an artist one on one in their studio, sharing this with you through a global online community for learning. As a Fibre Arts Take Two student, you are invited to share your artwork created as a result of our online courses through professionally designed online exhibitions that we are proud to publish and offer as a printed book through Blurb. A wonderful memento and keepsake of what continues to be outstanding artwork produced by many of our Fibre Arts Take Two students. Whether you're just starting out or an experienced artist our publications are just one example of what can be achieved through focus and dedication to your mixed media and fibre art practice under the guidance of professional artists and experienced tutors. Enjoy.
