February Artist of the Month workshop: Experimenting with Textiles

Date: Saturday, February 4, 2023
Time: 10am - 4pm
Venue: The Courthouse

Join Jane, the February artist of the month in our Cafe, to experiment with a range of textile techniques.

In this workshop you will create a beautiful finished 2D textile piece of art. The artwork will be inspired by the colours, shape and textures of Rock Pools.
Throughout the morning you will learn how to blend colours with Brusho in order to recreate the colours of sea water on fabrics. You will also be taught how to use freehand machine embroidery in order to create lines, circles and abstract shapes and finally create textures by distressing the fabrics with a heat gun.

Your tutor will be Jane Claire Wilson. Since graduating from Leeds Arts University with an MA in Creative Practice Jane has exhibited her textile artwork locally including in North Yorkshire Open Studios. Jane is experienced delivering workshops through her role as a Community Artist at Rural Arts.
