Event description

Description

Moth Studio is absolutely delighted to announce a fabulous one day workshop with Anne kelly.

Anne collects recycled fabric, paper and ephemera using collage, stitch, photographic and print processes to create mixed media textiles, framed and free hanging. Her inspirations are taken from travel and memory and naïve, outsider and folk art. Her heavily embroidered and textural works have been described as 'small worlds', with a small scrap or remnant of fabric that can inspire a whole piece.

Anne has three published books, the latest of which is 'Textile Folk Art' , her third book for Batsford, which examines the influences and links between folk art and textiles. Taking examples from well established artists and her own work, she locates the trend historically and geographically. Her book is in the Tate Modern Bookshop in London. Anne is on the Crafts Council Register of Makers.


THE CREATIVE DAY......

Using the initial starting point of seaside ephemera, shells, stones, seabirds and beach huts etc as inspiration, you will create a small folding book based on your chosen pieces.

A mixture of block printing, collage, hand stitching and machine embellishment (if desired) will create the basis of a piece which you can finish at home.

This course is suitable for all levels of experience.

Most materials will be provided but you may wish to bring along some images / pictures/ sketches of your favourite seaside inspiration, old domestic textile fragments or fabrics that will suit the theme etc..

Moth studio will provide all other equipment & resources.

Light refeshments, tea, coffee & juices are included in the cost but please bring your own lunch.
