Landscapes in Recycled Fabrics Workshop - When: Saturday 23rd August - Tutor: Justine Warner - Level: All - Refreshments included (just bring a packed lunch) - Cost: £60 Limited places available
During this workshop you will use a canvas of recycled fabric and build layers and texture to create a landscape or seascape. By layering and blending with threads, found objects and other textiles you will produce a piece of art which will be highly textural and have a depth of colour.
You will be introduced to and be given the opportunity to use experimental textile techniques to enhance and embellish the work and we will look at using pattern to create perspective. This will include free machine embroidery. No previous sewing machine experience necessary but you will need to bring your own fully working machine including a free machine embroidery foot/ drop feed dog. Justine will be happy to discuss whether your machine will be able to do this before the course date if you are unsure, just get in touch if that is the case.
All materials will be supplied but you may like to bring fabrics of sentimental value or pieces you may have already have based on your choice of moorland, landscape or seascape. Inspirational resources will also be available but you may like to bring your own photograph for us to discuss. Due to the varied nature of the topics you may choose please bring your own thread in the colours you think will suit. A sharp pair of fabric scissors would also be beneficial.
