Quilts and Textiles
FABRIC POSTCARD MONTAGES
In this workshop participants will create unique postcards that incorporate paint mediums and techniques of monoprinting, printing, image transferring, stamping and other textural effects. The fibre works produced could be compiled from images from holidays and found objects from the environment in which they live. They could be assembled creatively using the above techniques and embellishments.
Montage is the term given to selection, cutting and piecing together of diverse materials collated from varied sources and combining them in a singular composition.
FABRIC MEMORY BOOK
This workshop compiles stories into visual journals that offer a tactile experience for the participant. It incorporates mixed media techniques and ideas that are successful on fabric whilst using old and new materials. Design ideas, size, shape and themes will be discussed and decided upon. Colour and composition and textural elements such as collage will also be explored. The above evolves into the assemblage of fabrics and images to create a montage of varied materials and techniques. You don’t require a sewing machine for this workshop as many books can be created by hand stitching, glues and iron-on fusibles.
