Using an exciting mixture of different paints, resists, and glazes, make your own stamp blocks and creatively use pre-formed stamps, embellish with embossing powders and texture gels to create densely layered and textured background fabrics for stitching and beading during the second day, though you may want to continue experimenting for the whole time? Expect to get messy and finish the weekend with plenty of experimental surfaces.
For 2022, there are four weekends of workshops. These can be attended separately, or you can begin to build a real breadth of contemporary textile and mixed media skills by attending as many as possible. Each session will concentrate of different skills, each having developmental possibilities on its own, but each adding to a rich creative knowledge for you.
Bring your lunch. We'll provide tea and coffee. A materials and equipment list will be emailed after registration. Your tutor will also be providing a range of particular paints, inks, embossing powders, outliner paints, drawing ink, print block making materials and other equipment for you to use on the day ($35 materials charge included within your course fee). The tutor will also have a range of supplies available for purchase on the day.
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.
