Each session will concentrate of different skills, each having developmental possibilities on its own, but each adding to a rich creative knowledge for you.

Anyone with an enthusiasm for textile and mixed media arts, from beginner to experienced.
I am an internationally acknowledged artist, curator, tutor and author who loves to share my experimental and improvisational approaches. I specialise in a range of unusual materials such as metals, paper, wire and paint, and not for nothing is my blog called ‘Alysnsburntofferings’ as my techniques include burning, hammering, patinating and distressing (amongst others). Stitching and embellishing are not forgotten and are used freely and expressively. Designs and inspiration are often drawn from natural patterns and textures in addition to a fascination with the history and context of materials and techniques.
