Woodland Art Hanging with Melanie Missin

April 17 @ 10:00 am - April 18 @ 4:00 pm

£90.00

Woodland Wall Art

 In this workshop, you’ll be using a variety of techniques, including transfer paints, print blocks, free motion embroidery and gliding flakes, to make your own wall hanging based on trees.

I love flora and fauna, the natural world and all the amazing inspiration it gives, which I try and use in most of my work.
In 2019 I visited India twice, as a tutor and group leader, what an experience and inspiration it was. I was fascinated with the block printing that India is famous for. When I returned home, I decided to create some projects with the blocks I had bought. So Woodland Wall Art was born.
In this workshop you will be block printing with tree blocks, Transfer dyeing, layering, using a soldering tool and free motion stitching… it is a lot of fun and the best thing is that you will have created something to be proud of.

Melanie Missin is a British Textile Artist and Tutor. She has been working with textiles for over forty years. Her work is beautiful so please take a look at her website, it will inspires you.  In the last fourteen years she has been passing on her knowledge to students all over the country as well as still learning new techniques herself.

Publications

She has recently had a piece of work published in the New WOW book 5, it is a lovely book full of very inspirational textile artists articles.

Covid Postponement and Refunds

Here at Eau Brink Studio we want to ensure everyone who is booked onto one of our workshops is kept safe and we will follow the governments advice on educational workshops.

If government advice means face-to-face workshops cannot continue due to coronavirus (COVID-19), classes will be rescheduled to another date where possible.

Where this is the case, and you cannot attend the new workshop on the new date refunds will be provided.

If you have used paypal or card payments the companies take their fees out of refunds. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about this as they take their cut before they pay anything out.
