Service Description

Mersea Flora 2 day Workshop - Mersea Island 15th & 16th Sept 2022 Much of my recent work has been inspired by the Flora of the Saltmarsh and the intertidal zone ... resulting in a body of work called 'Mersea Floriligeum' . This is one of my favourite workshops - a really lovely experience to get back to nature and create. Day 1 We'll explore the Saltmarsh making a series of observations of Flora and the landscape as we go, on a concertina sketchbook with pre-prepared grounds . Later Back at the studio ... we will work into this further with a range of materials . With individual tuition and advice and some inspiration from some of Vinny's work we'll then start to explore a range of different ideas and outcomes. Day 2 Using the ideas developed on day 1, you will start to develop your final textile and mixed-media piece . The techniques you use will be individually tailored to your ideas , but may involve: printing, appliqué, mixed-media, bonding, dyeing techniques & machine & hand embroidery . All basic materials are included . You will need to bring lunch or there are lots of take-away or eat in options available . I may be able to help with a list of accommodation options if you are travelling to Mersea. Please let me know on booking if you require this.
