About The Event
This collaborative two-day LookDrawPrint workshop starts with the fabric and ends with the clay.
Day One LookDrawPrint - Fabric Saturday 10 - 5 pm
Working with simple tools and a basic stencil print process, you'll be learning skills that I've been honing in my own design work over the past 25 years. Beginning with drawing, we will produce a prototype textile design based on the things we can see around us.
Day Two LookDrawPrint - Clay Sunday 10 - 3.30 pm
Working in collaboration with Kara Woods in her pottery workshop space, we will be transferring the stencil motifs we made the day before onto simple, slab-built clay platters. The platters will be dried, fired and glazed the following week and sent out in the mail once they are finished.
Both workshops are dynamic, challenging, playful and productive. You'll explore mindful creativity, embrace chance and become friends with imperfection, to make your own unique multi-layered artworks with two different mediums. Prior printmaking or ceramics experience isn’t necessary – these are workshops that anyone can do.
I love it when beginners come along. Becoming more creative is just a matter of using that creative muscle and LookDrawPrint is a way to kick-start that process.
These are accessible, inclusive workshops, open to any one over the age of 16. Only eight per class, mind, so make sure you book early.
Bring an apron and an open mind, and we'll provide all materials and lunch.
Two days of lovely creative workshops. Saturday focusses on fabric from 10 - 5 pm and Sunday we work with the clay from 10 - 2pm. Don't forget your apron, but that's all you need to bring. Lunch and all materials are provided.
