Alice Fox.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Wednesday 26th July

Explore techniques for capturing natural colours on cloth and paper, bringing colour, mark and hand stitch together. Using gathered materials and plant matter we will make our own inks and experimental markmaking tools, as well as eco-printing on paper and cloth. We will bring these organic marks together with hand stitch in simple but unique handmade book structures.
Materials costs: 10.
colours ALICE FOX's work celebrates and carries an essence of what she experiences in the natural world, found items often forming the focus of her response to 'place'. Alice works with natural fibres (paper, cloth and thread), using natural dye techniques, print, stitch and weave in different combinations. Alice is author of Natural Processes in Textile Art (Batsford, 2015). She is a member of the Textile Study Group and the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
