Textile workshop - create fabric art 'Honesty' flower
Thu 20 July 2017, 10:30 – 16:00 BST
Spend the day learning from textile artist Meg Beable, and make your own unique piece of art, inspired by ‘Honesty’ the popular garden plant. How will you capture the ethereal seed heads and the slender stems while working with watercolours, fabrics and threads?
All materials are provided and this relaxed, practical day should be a real treat for craft enthusiasts who want to try something new, or artists who want to create art using different media.
Begin by painting in watercolours on fabric, usually on calico, before building it up with different materials – threads beads, & silk, melting – even burning and slashing them. All additions on the painting are stitched, not glued. In a small class with just 8 people you will have plenty of opportunity to learn from Meg.
