Tapestry Weaving - Windows on the natural world with Irene Evison:
Sunday 21st June, 10am to 4pm
Learn how to use simple tapestry weaving techniques to weave your own glimpse of the natural world. We will start indoors with a short introduction to tapestry weaving and Irene's approach to weaving, and will then venture outdoors. We'll explore views of nature at small and larger scales, trying out designs that work well for the medium of tapestry weaving – think colours, think shapes. And then it'll be time to start translating your chosen view of nature into a small woven piece that you'll be able to take home with you at the end of the day.
Workshop Location: Underhill Farm, Underhill Lane, Pant, SY10 9RB.
Block Printing with Drusilla Cole:
Saturday 27th June, 10am to 4.30pm
This deceptively simple technique uses Scratch Foam to produce prints on paper or card to create a look similar to Linocuts, but without the effort. It is suitable for beginners and improvers and interesting results can be achieved very quickly without the use of a press.
Colours may be layered one on top of another and the medium also looks stunning used for strong black and white designs.
£45 including all materials.
Please bring an apron and ideas or photos to work from. Make your own and take it home.
