Sculpting with Fabric - Handmade Journals (Weds 26th May)

The Courthouse Thirsk
Wednesday 26th May

(£20 + £8 materials)

Using fabric sculpting techniques, create your very own stunning textured nd three-dimensional A5 journal 

In this workshop you will learn basic fabric sculpting techniques, and use materials and embellishments to decorate an A5 hard-backed journal, creating stunning textures and designs.

There will be lots of different fabrics and embellishments to choose from to create a design in a theme and style of your choice.

Once dry, you will use a dry brushing technique to add colour and shading to enhance the fabric texture and surface detail. As always the exact design is up to you and your imagination but examples will be available for inspiration and design guidance.

Based in County Durham, Abigail Lagden creates fabric sculptures and mixed media pieces using a wide variety of fabrics, a fabric hardener and an array of other materials. She has a love of all things magical, mystical and fantastical, and this influence is evident throughout her work. Abigail loves to encourage and inspire others to discover their creativity and to develop through experimentation.

Suitable For: Suitable for all abilities. Just bring your imagination!

Materials: All materials are provided

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in the Rural Arts Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit the café page to view our menu.
