Event description

Description

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 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 plumbing pipe, washers and dyed sponges to create your own colourful embellishments, sequins and beads. All materials for this workshop are included in the ticket price as well as a selection of refreshments and snacks. All you need to bring along is yourself, a packed lunch and an apron for the messy, morning part of the workshop!


The workshop is held in the Fabrications 2 building, which is a fantastic working studio in the centre of Leeds. The full address is: Hereford House, 6 Edward Street, Leeds, L2 7NT. The venue is an easy 10 mins walk from Leeds train station, and there is also a public pay and display carpark outside of the building.
