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.
