Phil’s 8th poster – “Random Pattern Workshop” – Making patterns from dice throws at the Maritime Museum.
(Phil): I was asked by the lovely Anna Shortland to run a Teen / Family workshop at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum for their summer events programme. She & I loved the outcome of the “Colourclash” pattern workshop I ran, so decided to run it for Teenagers & Families. It’s a simple premise, of letting a dice throw call the shots in order to make a pattern “cell” & use the computer to create a repeat pattern from it. The delight in the faces of the participants is ace, from bemusement to joy when seeing a simple set of shapes & colours become a vibrant repeat pattern. The kids were super chuffed with the results. I’ve used the “offcuts” here to create the base image.
