Cas Holmes - Images and Narrative in Textiles 
Restructured Books/Book pages-Maps   
29th and 30th September 2018
10 am till 4 pm daily
£60.00 per day + materials

 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 pages from 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 maps, bookpages, paper and cloth, 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 and cloth 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. Structural context of books, maps, scrolls will be used as reference to explore folded or rolled surfaces.

Experience: Suitable for all levels of experience
