Artist talk

Past Present Future: sustaining practice. Tim Parry-Williams.

Tim Parry-Williams is a weaver, designer, researcher, curator and MA Design Fashion and Textiles course leader at Bath Spa Uni. This is what I have learnt today from craftsman Parry-Williams.

Plan your studio days as they are precious.
Translate to other ways of working.
Reflect on your practice, deconstruct what you are doing.
What have you got to offer?
What is your vocabulary, your language?
Think about how you start. I start painting either with a thick, solid ground or I build up with thin layers of glaze.
Record your task for the day. Be focused.
How can I translate what I am seeing in other artists work to mine?
Responding to the world by gaining a grounding in materials and process.
Dedicate your time to polishing a certain skill.
