Event description

Description

AT SALTAIRE

This workshop is all about exploring and experimenting with colour, pattern and texture. Embroidery artist Jessica Grady will begin the workshop by showing you various ways to add colour and pattern to paper through mixed media approaches using paint, collage and different resists such as bleach, tape and masking fluid. You will build up a selection of sketchbook pages with different patterns and designs which will inspire your embroidery later in the workshop. After a lunch break you will use your textured sketchbook papers to act as an inspiration (or even materials!) towards a 3D embroidered and embellished piece of textile art.

As well as traditional fabrics and threads, Jessica will demonstrate how you can use unusual materials such as washers and waste plastics to create your own colourful embellishments, sequins and beads, and also for adding texture and patterns to your sketchbook papers! You will leave the class with a sketchbook bundle of mark-making ideas and a developed fabric sample. You can also develop your paper pages further in the next workshop - "Create your own fabric prints" in which you can have 2 of your ideas printed onto fabric to create your own unique print! (this second workshop will take place on Wednesday 25 March 2020, 10am - 4pm).
