GIFT BOXES WITH LISA TILLEY
Sat 19 November 2016, 11:00 – 17:00 GMT
When materials do not lend themselves to society's contemporary plans, Lisa Tilley appropriates and refurbishes them, developing new products which are compliant with the demands of modern day living.
Inspired by vintage materials, each bag is skillfully produced. Some include imagery that has been painstakingly cut out and applied using the art of decoupage, others hand embroidery that has been carefully sewn over beautiful and delicate crochet patterned paper. All are made with materials that have had a previous life: magazines, newspapers and home furnishings such as retro print curtains, pillow cases and tea cosy’s.
Join us in creating your very own unique gift box. You’ll learn how to decoupage a small wooden box, that’s perfect for filling with small gifts for a loved one and can be kept afterwards as a trinket or memory box. That’s unless you decide it’s far too special to give away and keep it for yourself. Suitable for all levels of learners.
A selection of imagery will be provided but please do bring anything you already have if you would like to make it more personal.
