I’ve had a spell of doing workshops recently and as a result I’ve had a few enquiries about future ones. I will be teaching Waxed and Stitched Collage at InStitches, Wokingham, Surrey on 19 and 20 January 2017. This is already full but it is worth contacting them to go on the waiting list as they will be adding another date later in the year.
We’ll be doing this sort of thing ….. these are mine!
I’m also teaching an Exploring Place workshop for Tex Art Academy amongst the chestnut trees and mountains in beautiful Mugena, Switzerland. This will be an exploration for me as well as you as I haven’t been to this place before. It is a wooded environment full of light, shadows and birdsong rather than a coastal landscape and I am very excited to have new materials and experiences to play with.
We’ll be sensing and documenting the environment using drawing, mark-making, sound recording and writing and then back in the studio will experiment with paper, cloth, stitch, collage and printmaking to create a record of the explorations.
Here is some student work from a previous workshop – mark-making and collage.
We’ll also do some 3-D work …
The student work above was made on the Sculptural Forms workshop that was held recently at the wonderful Studio 11, Eastbourne and I am going to do another Textile Re-Treat there in 2018. Details are yet to be confirmed but again it is worth contacting Christine Chester to go on the waiting list.
I update my website as new workshops come up so if you are interested please keep an eye on it.
