Event description

Description

Jennifer Collier originally studied textiles at Manchester and she has pioneered the manipulation and construction of paper usually using vintage and found items. She has exhibited her work extensively throughout the UK and her work is sold all over the world. We are thrilled that she is travelling to Devon to run 2 workshops. Paper Bird Boxes on Saturday and Paper Shoes on Sunday.

Paper Bird Boxes. Creating a beautiful bespoke bird box, complete with its own bird on the perch, created from recycled papers, stitch and card, inspired by Jennifer’s own work. In this workshop you will be shown every step of the process, from constructing your bird box, to using beautiful, vintage papers to decorate it. This will be embellished with a range of hand stitches, including an optional picot stitched trim around the door. You will also be shown other techniques, such as embossing, and will go on to making your own mono-printed bird to sit on the perch. All materials and equipment are provided, but you may wish to bring along your own special papers, books or maps to personalise your work. Suitable for all abilities.
