    About the workshop

    Create your own wall hanging with a marine inspired themes. Participants will be provided with a blank linen wall hanging to decorate with either discarded/re-worked materials or by using found materials.

    The workshop will aim to re-evaluate how perceived throw away or found materials could be re-worked in a creative inspiring wayand create inciteful discussion around waste. You will be guided on how materials can be re-worked and shown how to use colour and create a successful composition.

    Skills demonstrated will include basic stitching, saw piercing, cutting and punching out of textile or found materials to create patterns and shapes which would be used to create the decorative elements of the wall hanging piece.

    About the artists

    Laura Sherriffs of Fernweh, a slow fashion textile business, is inspired by a spirit of adventure and exploring the wilds of Scotland. The key values in Laura’s work are the use of natural materials sourced in the UK whose processes are sustainable and environmentally safe.

    Aubin Stewart of Aubin Jewellery is a designer with a passion for alternative materials and loves nothing more that re-purposing waste, found or offcut materials into one-off or small batch produced wearable pieces. Finding that they have a shared interest in re-purposing scrap and off cut materials to reduce waste using alternate approaches, both makers are coming together to share their skills in this workshop at Greyhope Bay.
