Spend 6 weeks satisfying your 'Magpie Brain' in creative mixed media.
For 6 weeks from 14th February to 21st March we are exploring all things bright and shiny!
you can enjoy using fabrics, papers, paint, print, stitch, beads and more to make your own creative art.
Get to grips with glitz, glitter and gilding. Use Angelina fibres and more to add a bit (or a lot) of sparkle to your work.
Then explore ways to manipulate these to create richly coloured, textured and embellished surfaces and forms that can be used to create 2D journal covers, wall-hangings, or 3D forms, such as vessels, jewellery or sculpture.
You will examine and explore the distinctive properties the properties of Angelina Fibres. Learn how to fuse them and to apply heat to transform them to create rich textural surfaces suitable for stitch and further embellishment.
Begin by creating a folio of experimental samples, then combine your new skills with other materials and techniques such as stitching by hand and by machine to create a unique mixed media and textile artwork.
The classes are led by Alysn Midgelow-Marsden, an internationally experienced artist and teacher. Anyone with an enthusiasm for textile and mixed media arts, from beginners, improvers and experienced alike are invited to book and join in with what Alysn warns ‘may become the start of an obsession’! You will learn to view almost anything as a creative tool, including a sewing machine and candles. You will learn using experimental, inclusive approaches, be guided in techniques and design skills and begin to develop your own personal style.
Details of what you need to bring will be sent to you after you book, you will only need a few basics. Most materials and equipment are provided.
Sessions will be held at the Rothesay Rooms in the East Coast Bays Community Rooms, Glen Road. Browns Bay. This a very spacious room giving plenty of space for us all to be creative.
