Next Course: 1st - 7th September 2019
My concept for the courses is to focus on painting fabric as a base for embroidery, introducing participants to using silk paints on woven and non-woven fabrics.
Participants are encouraged to take inspiration from local wild flowers and the landscape, leading them through a design process to create up to three small pieces of work suitable for framing.
Weather permitting, we will add in some sun printing with dyes and/or cyanotype chemicals. The cyanotype prints will be on cotton and suitable for incorporating in larger wall hangings, home furnishings or clothing if participants prefer.
The course is suitable for beginners and inexpensive to resource. Most of the equipment will be provided, barring fabrics.
