June 13th 2020 Exploring Wildflowers in Textile Art at Gateshead Library
I offer workshops to groups and individuals. Workshops cover particular themes such as the Tin Can Project, Grand Designs or Lettering in Textile Media.
Grand Designs A practical workshop developing a three dimensional small scale beach hut or garden shed
A Perfect Place – Miniature Scene A practical workshop to create a miniature textile art work showing a favourite place – real or imaginary!
This Land of Ours /Landscape to Dye for A practical workshop exploring how to capture landscape in fabric and stitch, participants will work from their own preparatory work – drawings/paintings/photos/magazine images to develop an appliqué image of a landscape/scenery that is special to them. This workshop can be adapted to take one or two days, longer workshops will incorporate a fabric dyeing session to create the colours for the landscape chosen.
The Wild Flower Project Create a textile artwork inspired by wild flowers, using free machine embroidery and applique to capture the beauty and tenacity of wild flowers in urban or rural settings.
