Monday 27th July to Friday 31st July

Working within the restraints of simple materials and limited colour combinations let work grow and unfold in an exploratory workshop creating subtle and dynamic surfaces to stitch and work with mixed media. Transform and manipulate papers, fabrics and threads into layered surfaces to work with hand and machine stitch. Let the work unfold; add layers of restricted colour combinations revealing subtle and surprising effects. What would happen if the surface is further developed by folding, cutting, fragmenting, rearranging, further stitch... follow your own creative pathway to inspire imaginative outcomes. Enjoy the freedom to develop a collection of paper fabric and mixed media pieces, exploring personal themes in line colour and texture. A course designed to extend creative boundaries. There will be a materials cost of £12 per student
