4th Marks Stitch ClothCas Holmes 10 am till 4 pm
Aims and objectives: A mixed media workshop introducing the student to approaches to using paper, textile, mark and stitch to create pieces based on natural forms or the landscape. A focus will be placed on stitching as an extension of mark making and drawing.. We will use a variety of papers and fabric, and build up images, textures and mix materials. The workshop is experimental and intended to provide students with different ideas for development based on the artist’s own practice. Students will leave the workshop with a piece in progress for further stitching. The pieces could also be used in the two day workshop following this one day course.

Broad outline of the workshop:  
An introduction to simple techniques of drawing and staining pages/cloth. Introduction to stitch.
£65.00 FULL

5th - 6th  Layers, Lines and Images: Textile Books Cas Holmes .10 am till 4 pm
Suitable for artists who enjoy taking time for experimental discovery, guided by Cas who enjoys introducing the serendipity of found materials into the art-making process. 
What is the workshop / course about?
Artists always make reference to other images and narrative. You can use an old book, maps and found printed materials as a starting point to create a new work. The materials, text and references you decide to use will direct the content and processes used from layering and cutting techniques through to stitch, dye and print. This is not a book-binding course. 
During this workshop, participants will make small personal works with narrative, meaning and humour. Low-tech methods will transform raw materials and found objects into textile art. Simple drawings staining and colouring of pages, cutting, pasting, stitching and collage will be our primary tactics to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
On the first day: We will look at rubbing, staining and mark making, on paper using drawing/painting media and stitch. Reference will be made to paper lamination layering of paper with found materials and fabric using techniques adapted from Japanese screen making and paper crafts. As you work you will look at the references to text and other images you have collected. and consider how you may want to place them together.
On the second day. Look at ways of working with the papers and samples produced to date focusing on use of the use of text/image to inform the stitch/mark. Ways of joining pieces together, patchwork, seams, gathers, tearing, building towards textured and sculptural surfaces 

Will there be additional costs?
The focus will be on found materials. I am happy to also provide a small pack of specialist conservation papers and paste per student and email workshops notes for no more than £5 per head.
Wear suitable clothes for a workshop
