"ArtChalkTalk" is an educational series for the benefit of members, in response to members' requests over the past year or two. They are designed to take the mystery out of the process of some of the more entrepreneurial aspects of creativity in textiles and encourage members to participate in new challenges and opportunities.

These sessions are for all members at all stages of their art practice, and especially for those who feel they would benefit from the experience and expertise of others in some areas. They will be based on interactivity, between those teaching or facilitating the topics, and with sister students. This approach has been chosen to encourage all to build on and to share their experiences with other ATASDA members.

Learning is one of life’s joys!



How can you convey your thoughts and feelings to others who are viewing your work? People want to know your inspiration, the development of your design, as well as your technical processes. Learn to let others into your creative mindspace. Learn no-fuss & no-stress methods to make a techniques board
