'The art of Devore' 2-day textiles workshop with Gill Kirk
Sat, 15 Jul 2017, 10:00 – Sun, 16 Jul 2017, 16:30 BST
An extended two-day workshop exploring Devore fabric art with Gill Kirk who combines printmaking and textiles as an artist. Textile skills will be developed with the aim to create finished pieces inspired by the plants from Skelton Grange. You may choose to design and print scarf lengths and / or a piece to frame. Your prepared artwork can also be copied onto acetates and then transferred onto a silkscreen to allow repeat printing of your design for multiple effects. All materials and tools will be provided, with extra fabrics available to purchase
We will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products. Please bring a packed lunch with you - local options are limited.
Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...
All proceeds will go to support the great charitable work of The Conservation Volunteers at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, which you can read more about on our website .
