Justine Warner

Woodland Layers
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019

During this two day workshop Justine will work through layering and removing fabrics to create a woodland scene from recycled material. With an emphasis on depth, space and perspective fabrics will be used to draw the viewer into the landscape.

The first day will be looking at how to build the layers in sequence and identify how the foundation of the fabric can be laid to create a textural canvas to build upon. The second day will be for adding detail and looking at ways in which this can be achieved with a number of decorative techniques including hot textiles and using reclaimed/ found materials.

Students will need to use their own sewing machine which must have a drop feed dog to use free machine embroidery. (Advice can be given on this prior to the event.) Recycled fabrics and specialist materials will be provided, though this is an excellent opportunity to bring along your own materials, maybe of sentimental value, or simply be a piece of fabric awaiting that special project.

About Justine

Justine is a regular tutor at Lund Studios with her year-long textile courses. She is local to the area and has been exhibiting and tutoring in North Yorkshire in a number of experimental and landscape courses. Her signature pieces use men's ties to add warmth, texture and intrigue to local landscapes and local views. Her more recent work has been part of a residency at the Yorkshire Arboretum where her passion for trees and woodland scenes was embedded. Justine will be having an exhibition of her work at Nunnington Hall, linked to the Rievaulx Terraces and their own woodlands.
This course is a subject close to her heart.
