Walk along the shoreline; rock formations and fossils, seaweed, fishing nets and wire, tangled coloured plastic, rusted metal and driftwood - inspiration for development into textile and mixed media work. Enjoy exploring methods of working with a sketchbook, expanding ideas through experimental sampling with layered papers, fabrics, threads and colour, creating tactile surfaces to work with flexible free machine stitch techniques in a variety of ways. Stretch your creative imagination on a course designed for those with machine embroidery skills who wish to develop confidence in handling colour, texture and line. Above all bring an open mind and a willingness to experiment.
There will be a materials cost of approx 15.
