Pick an Artist and Play with Ruth Holmes
If you have a favourite artist bring along books and pictures. However don’t panic as I will provide artist pictures that you can work from. We will be exploring looking into the small details and brush strokes and taking these to develop abstract pictures using a variety of printing, painting, stamp making. we will enlarge small bits of the paintings and cut them up and re-arrange. Once you have created a number of pieces you can hand or machine stitch and embellish in any way you choose.
All you have to do is bring yourself, your sewing kit and sewing machine and your lunch. All drinks are supplied and there are snacks and cake too.
