Cost:

This is a relaxed informal textiles workshop suitable for beginners and those with some experience of painting and/or stitching. We will take our inspiration from the gardens at Westbury Arts Centre and the approach to documenting nature of artists such as Kurt Jackson. Weather permitting, we will spend some time in the gardens selecting wild flowers and grasses which we can use to create sun prints and/or cyanotype images. These images can then be stitched into and incorporated into small concertina books.
The workshop fee includes all materials needed, but please bring an apron, your own scissors and needles, and a packed lunch. If the weather is fine you may need a sun hat.
