Textile Art Workshops

Textile Art Workshops - St Ives Cornwall
Textile Art Workshops - St Ives Cornwall

So, here we are January 2010 time to talk about workshops I will be running this year. So far the programme includes:

23rd January - Monoprinting on Fabric
6th February - Fabric Birds
27th February - Fabric Collage
6th March - Working with Water Soluble Fabric
17th April - Weaving Without a Loom

All the above workshops cost £40 inc materials and are run from my home at 31 Bedford Road, St. Ives from 10 a.m. To 4 p.m.

There is quite a gap between the water soluble fabric and weaving without a loom workshop because I will be running a Feltmaking Weekend on Saturday 20th March and Sunday 21st March.

This will include learning the basic flat feltmaking technique and then how to make a seamless felt bag on the Saturday and Sunday will be spent learning how to make felt beads and how to make felt using a technique similar to silk papermaking.

This is intended to be a residential weekend with people arriving on the Friday afternoon/evening and leaving on the Sunday afternoon. However, the workshop will also be available to people living locally who will only pay for the two day workshop.

The cost for the two days is £100 which will include materials.

As there is an extensive range of accommodation on offer in and around St. Ives I will supply information on accommodation when people book.

If any of the above is of interest to anyone out there please get in touch.
