Event description
A workshop using found objects in mixed media and woven artworks, led by textile artist Ali Holloway and artist Marcia Teusink.

About this Event

Taking found objects as a starting point, we will spend the day exploring colour, form and texture through mixed media compositions and small hand-woven artworks. In the first part of the workshop, we will guide you in transforming everyday objects--such as wrappers, old cans, plastics, broken ceramics or bits of fabric--into a variety of compositions using collage, watercolours, coloured pencils, oil pastels, etc. Having worked through at least a few possible solutions in mixed media, in the second phase of the workshop, you will transform your ideas into small woven textile pieces. These may take the form of incorporating actual objects into weavings, or weavings into objects, or more straight forward 2-D woven pieces on small weaving frames. This workshop is very open-ended, experimental, and fun! You will have expert guidance in colour and composition from the artists, and in weaving from Ali, and also be encouraged to play and find some new ways of working from found materials.

You should bring your own collection of found objects/materials, and we will have lots on hand as well. All other materials are provided. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided as well! Please bring your own packed lunch: we will break for an hour from 1-2pm, and if the weather is nice, go eat in the park down the road.
