Aims and objectives: A mixed media workshop introducing the student to approaches to using paper, textile, print, dye and stitch to create pieces based on the ‘land’ and landscape or a subject of your choice. A focus will be placed on stitching as an extension of mark making and drawing, and various means of layering. We will use photocopies, and build up images, textures and mix materials. The workshop is experimental and intended to provide students with different ideas for development based on the artist’s own practice.

She is the author of Stitch Stories (2015), The Found Object in Textile Art (2010) and co-author of Connected Cloth (2013).Her work combines the use of hand-made paper with dyeing, textiles and stitchery to create richly coloured, semi-sculptural works.
