Service Description

Fascinated by transparent fabrics and light, Vinny developed a range of different processes and techniques which metamorphosed into a body of work inspired by the Flora of the intertidal zone, which she has called ‘The Mersea Florilegium’ Her work has evolved from drawing trips to observe the flora of the Saltmarsh which she has called her 'Saltmarsh Safari' . She has now put this together as a 2-day workshop on 28th & 29th July 2022, 10-4pm each day. You will spend the first part of Day 1 embarking on the Safari to draw and observe Salt marsh Flora and natural forms . Part 2- Day 1 and Day 2 you go back to the workshop venue, to learn a variety of mixed-media techniques which with Vinny's encouragement you will use to develop your own personal outcome. This could take the form of a textile panel or hanging or you could create your own Flora Disc. A machine which can do freehand machine embroidery will be needed and as well as basic sewing equipment. You can also bring a range of threads and transparent fabrics such as nets and chiffons. (A full workshop list will be supplied on booking) If you need accommodation on Mersea Island, please let me know on booking and I will try to provide you with a list .
