This is an on-line course with an introductory session on Friday 6th May at 5.00pm for approximately an hour and two full days on the 7th and 8th May 2022. Full instructions for how this will work with all the necessary links will be send to you in advance of the course, with the full requirement list.

Course Description

In this two-day online workshop, including an introductory session, lace will be your inspiration. You will study and draw the patterns and textures of lace, then develop printed and collaged surfaces from your drawings. You will experiment with piercing and cutting into paper and fabric to create lacy surfaces. Using different materials and media, you will explore a variety of textile and stitch techniques to create patterned, raised and textured samples which may be stitched into by hand or machine.

Your samples will be collated in a small sketchbook, which will be a work of art in its own right. Some of these samples will be stitched or printed ‘sketches’, which may form ideas for future work, whilst others may be more resolved and completed delicate, mini artworks.
