A 2 DAY WORKSHOP to push those that want to be pushed beyond what they had expected

 In this workshop, participants will explore new ways of mark-making.  There are many ways to make a mark.  A stitch makes one kind of mark, a paintbrush another, a hammer and nail another.  Working with various types of fabric and paper, we will experiment with different methods of mark-making including stitching, resist, as well as more unconventional means such as piercing, folding and burning.  This collection of richly activated surfaces will be constructed into simple bound and folded Journal forms.  Participants will be asked to bring a group of their own personal materials to make their journals individual expressions..

GLENYS MANN

Glenys Mann finds herself getting even more radical with her work – pushing both personal and technical boundaries – allowing time to respond ‘to’ the cloth, rather than force it to fit to some preconceived plan – Glenys limited only by the rate at which she travels toward new horizons.

Priscilla Jones` Lost and Found Mixed Media Sculpture  workshop` Sat&Sun May 9th/10th 2015 £150

 

 

Priscilla creates  sculptures that draw upon her life long love affair with here vast collections of odd an curious objects.  During this two day workshop, Priscilla will share with you the creative techniques developed through her experimentation and process of making.  You will make your very own 3D sculpture inspired by whatever theme you wish… using wire, wax, and found ephemera. You will learn a range of processes including how to construct a wire structure that can be in 3D or 2D using light weight wire and then work into this by creating a surface to hand stitch and embellish with paper, buttons, beads and trimmings. Materials will be provided all you need bring is enthusiasm and some found objects or materials from your own collecting. This is a perfect opportunity to develop ideas you may have started in previous workshops with Priscilla or you may wish to come along and learn a range of new and exciting techniques!
