A Conversation in Layers

Challenge yourself by building a series of works shaped and layered with paper and cloth.

Where a narrative will be created that speak of a sense of time and place. These

memories will be captured through a variety of mixed media techniques on paper and

cloth, then hand stitched with a modern born aesthetic.

> Create your own set of of five handmade brushes specifically designed for mark-making.

> Explore a variety of surface design techniques including monotypes, hand painting,

mark-making, stamping and collage. Then create translucent layers of hand painted

organza to reveal your story by creating a unique and intimate series of fibre works.

> Memories are revealed in the creative process by building your story by layering and

stitching together whilst questioning ‘that space in between’ your thoughts. Where the

shapes and form appear and it’s those ‘thinking and the non thinking spaces - that breath

in between”.

> This workshop will be an opportunity to look deeper into your thinking processes whilst

using an open and adventurous approach. This will be an exciting and fun packed

workshop that will let the conversation begin ……………..

Suitable for all skill levels.
