Event description

Description

This is a fun and unique workshop exploring the potential of creating your own handmade embellishments using a variety of processes and materials. Through experimenting with dyeing, painting and hand printed techniques - contemporary embroidery artist Jessica Grady will teach how to turn waste and unconventional materials into beautiful and exciting embellishments to use within hand embroidery.

Workshop outline

The day will begin by hand dyeing a variety of synthetic materials such as nylon washers, tile spacers and cable ties - along with other plastic or recycled materials. Jessica will show you how to create various effects with the dye to achieve interesting and exciting results. This will be followed by experimenting with painting a variety of metal embellishments using fabrics as stencils to achieve various patterns. Jessica will also show you how to use a selection of printing processes such as foil, flock and expanding medium to create final effects on embellishments of your choice.

After a lunch break you will use your mixed media creations, along with additional materials provided by Jessica to start creating a 3D, contemporary embroidery design.

Info

Refreshments and all materials are included in the ticket price - please bring a packed lunch and wear something that can get messy! The day will involve lots of standing for the morning part.
