It is a long while since I taught this course but time for a revival I think! I am still enchanted by trying to depict an animal - trying to capture its’ personality through textile collage and stitch. In this one day course you will use iconic wild animals such as deer, hares, foxes and wolves as an inspirational starting point to teach you to make a textile collage which will be built up on to a base of a vintage quilt fragment. You will learn to use slow and traditional hand sewing techniques such as a freeform appliqué and embroidery in a new way to make a unique textile narrative.
You will need to choose the animal that you want to have a go at before you come so I can prepare a bundle of materials for you to use but if you have an idea of something else then provide me with a good image and I will see if I can facilitate that. You will learn a lot of the basic techniques here which can then be applied to other projects eg. birds. To be put on the reserve list for this workshop please email me.
