Service Description

Sheer Magic @ No. 4, West Mersea . With Vinny Stapley Sunday 8th May 10-4pm 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’. She has now put this together as an online zoom workshop. This will be on 8th May and will run from 10- 4pm with breaks and lunch break factored in. Its a small workshop space at the venue, so places are limited to 6 only. As a starting point you will make expressive observations of Flora and natural forms . You will then learn how to bond fabrics and fibres and use dissolvables to create etherial webs and delicate organdie textured grounds, upon which you will stitch your favourite natural form using the observations you have made. 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, but if you would rather a basic workshop pack with specialist materials will be available to buy for £15. I will also be doing a 2 day live workshop in August , combining a Saltmarsh Safari drawing trip on beautiful Mersea Island , followed by a workshop day using the above processes to create your own disc or panel. Am also doing a similar workshop 'Transparency in Textiles' at Bank Studios in Harwich on Nov 13th .. please go to their website for further details
