KAY GREENLEES: 3rd, 4th and 5th May 2019
Inspired by Lace
£195 for 3 days
Kay will be working from beautiful historical lace examples. You can either bring your own or Kay will have plenty with her. You will explore some of the key visual ideas associated with lace and use simple methods to record these as the starting point for small-scale workbooks.
'That is already whetting my appetite!!! '
Kay will be getting you to explore marks and textures and you will be largely working in black and white but incorporating some colour to provide interest. This is a great way to be concentrating on key issues, as colour can sometimes get in the way!
Ideas will be developed in a variety of paper types and weights, inventing as you go, and Kay will allow plenty of room for personal interpretation, within a supportive structure. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced worker there should be some challenges, a bit of fun, and plenty of scope for adapting the ideas for work with fabric and stitch.
Whats more, into the bargain, you will go home with a small-scale themed sketchbook.
