Stitch, Paper, Cloth
An introductory workshop based on some of the artist’s personal approaches to creating mixed media works with found materials. We will look at transforming paper and combining it with textile and stitch to create small postcard size samples. Students will explore ideas related to design and the creation of textile papers (momigami) and look at different ways of texturing and transforming found surfaces.
Pat Archibald www.patarchibald.com
£35 + £3 kit for use of Markal and brushes
Pat will introduce different ways of working with Markal paint sticks and then we will move onto working on a project so that you can take home something that will be almost finished.
Using one or two beautiful Japanese family crests we will use Markal and simple stencils to transfer the designs to fabric. We will add a narrow border and binding and finish with some quilting.
