Join us for an innovative two day workshop using metal as a textile. Auckland based artist, Alysn Midgelow-Marsden leads an enjoyable workshop, “Barking Mad Textures”.
Monday 23 & Tuesday 24 October
10am – 4pm both days
Course Fee : £200 (£175 discounted rate for concessions and students)
The fee includes most materials and light refreshments
Limited to 8 artists
In this workshop we use textile based and mixed media techniques and materials to develop an interpretation of patterns of tree bark. You will create, collage, assemble and modify papers; use gilding techniques; use metallic fibres; and stitch by hand to develop a rich contemporary textile artwork.
Alysn demonstrates and explains all techniques so that you are able to participate no matter what stage you are at in your creative life.
This two-day workshop exploring Barking Mad Textures is suitable for makers with all levels of experience.
We aim to provide most, if not all, the materials you need or want to use during the workshop with Alysn and there will be starter kits available to purchase.
No matter your level of experience, everyone is welcome to join this course. We have a fun and supportive environment that is ideal for learning new techniques and sharing ideas.
We provide light refreshments throughout the day, but please bring your lunch. Or you could visit our neighbouring cafes in Dickens Yard – there are lots to choose from.
