Beyond the surface- paper, stitch and mixed media with Cas Holmes
Wed & Thurday, 29 and 30th May 2013 10-4pm £125 per person
An experimental workshop looking to demonstrate the versatility of paper as medium for painting, stitch and 3d techniques. We will explore ideas of the repeat and fold focusing on methods adapted from Japanese paper techniques. Using mixed media methods we explore the character and the quality of old and fragmented surfaces. Tactile qualities of texture and will be emphasized as we look at the layers by cutting and deconstruction techniques. Participants will be asked to bring a small treasured object or an image which will be used as a starting point for developing a series of small collages, these could be the inspiration for a larger piece or further development.
