Description

Colour & Texture Through Textiles with Rosalind Johannson

Thursday 15h November 2018, 10am-5pm at Cobden Works, Salford

Rosalind’s masterclass will give a fascinating insight into her own practice as an international textile artist as well as her unique understanding of cultural & emotional responses to colour & design. This practical making workshop will focus on colour and geometry, using simple collaging rather than slower more technical fabric methods.

Suitable for all, no sewing skills are necessary as the focus will be on collage and use of colour and shape for applications like textiles.

More about Rosalind:
Rosalind Johansson is a textile artist and teacher based in Herefordshire, England.

Taking influences from her years spent living in Botswana and Tanzania in Africa, Norway and Sweden in Scandinavia and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia, Rosalind's vibrant style celebrates the wealth of colours, themes and techniques used in textile artistry across the globe.

A keen quilter, Rosalind uses intricate stitching details to create vivid masterpieces, often depicting visual scenes synonymous with the countries she has inhabited.

Rosalind is a keen public speaker and teacher of textiles, having spoken at many quilt making groups and regional days, and is a teacher at The Festival of Quilts and other textile shows around the country.

A 2015 textiles tour took Rosalind across Peru, which she names as the inspirational theme for her current work. She has since moved to Peru,deepening her knowledge of the wonderful textiles to be found there, not least embroidery, weaving and knitting. Most recently Rosalind has been studying weaving techniques with world- renowned Peruvian weaver Maximo Laura in his studio in Lima.
