Textile Heirlooms workshop at No 4 West Mersea , 5th October, 10am - 4pm. In this workshop we will utilise some of the processes and techniques I have used within my own work to create a small panel inspired by your own family history. You just need to bring a few A6 close up portraits of family members printed out onto computer paper . I will provide the rest . You will learn: How to develop image transfers on to textiles. Develop an effective composition of layering a variety of mixed media and textile fragments to create evocative vintage inspired textile work. How to add machine or hand embroidery techniques to create flow and detailed embellishment within the composition. How to use Gesso to further enhance and create texture and highlights in your work. A longer 2 day workshop ‘Memory Box’ - where a 3D box is made is also available.
