Workshops

 

 

Tantalising Textures 

Sinagua

This panel is inspired by the rocks of Arizona.


 Choose a photograph or some form of inspiration that is textural  eg rocks, tree bark, lichen, waterfalls, weeping willow, rock garden etc  Then working on a base of traditional felt or fabric, we will the apply a variety of media, fabrics, stitching and sculptural beadwork.
Participants will learn techniques which will enable them to interpret their own source of inspiration in a textural way.

Algar Waterfalls, Spain

This piece is inspired by just a small section of the Algar Waterfalls. These are found about 15Km from Benidorm and are quite majestic.

Mixed fibres, Wensleydale fleece, Tyvek and beadwork are used in this mixed media panel, which is mainly needlefelted.
