I’ve been spending a great deal of one-on-one time with my computer lately. As a co-convenor of the Judging Education Pilot Program of The Quilters’ Guild of NSW Inc, I am preparing for our upcoming session on judging and reviewing textile art. We have a full day in store including:
- a presentation by Judy Hooworth on the Elements and Principles of Design;
- a “Judges Choice” exercise where each participant chooses a work from Quilt National 2015 and gives a short presentation using the DAIJ-Description, Analysis, Interpretation, Judgment methodology (see, for example, How to Critique Artwork like a Pro);
- a jurying exercise where teams select 8-12 works for an exhibition from a pool of 24 works; and
- a discussion on judging textile art and a mock judging exercise including giving written feedback to the entrants.
