Travels in Textiles with Anne Kelly - Sunday 3rd November 2019
Sunday 3rd November 2019 10am - 4pm
Working from a collection of photos or postcards, old receipts, brochures, we will create a folding book or collaged piece using these elements. The resulting piece will be a personal response to a special place or event. Stitch, drawing and collage will be used. You will be able to select a theme, place or event and a colour theme for your chosen place. You will also be able to use writing/lyrics as part of your work. You will receive a list of any materials you need to bring with you closer to the time*.
INCLUDED: Materials* and equipment provided a lovely homemade lunch, cake and refreshments to keep you well fuelled through out the day!
