creative expression through textiles

Cas Holmes 'Using the Found' paper & stitch Workshop
Mon 19 Jun 2017 to Mon 19 Jun 2017

Workshop brief - Based on Cas’s personal approaches you will create postcard samples transforming paper and combining it with stitch. Students will explore design ideas and the creation of textile papers (momigami) and look at ways of texturing and transforming found surfaces. The focus will be on hand stitching as an extension of mark making and drawing with various means of layering. You will use photocopies, build up images and textures and mix materials. Work guidelines and samples will be available to demonstrate other approaches with the technique including machine and hand stitch.
