Second Session 29/30 September and 1 October 2014

Overview:

Come and enjoy three days at beautiful Bordesley Abbey and Needle Museum experimenting with a variety papers and fabrics as backgrounds for monoprints using a gelli plate and then using these, together with a variety of other media to create a unique stitched canvas.

Day One

On day one we will prepare some textured papers to cover our canvas and then spend the day finding out just what that gelli plate can do. Using the abbey grounds and museum as inspiration, we will make and use stamps, stencils, masks and natures' bounty to make a lovely pile of totally unique prints

Day Two

On day two we will look at options for design layouts and try out ideas and layouts in our sketchbooks. The emphasis here will be on keeping calm and enjoying the process … rather than aiming for a specific, pre-imagined idea! Guidance and prompts will be given so you will not have to dread the blank page moment – I promise. We will then use a selection of our materials from day one to make a mixed media collage on our prepared canvas.

Day Three

Day three will flow on from day two ... allowing a fair degree of freedom for students. We will also experiment with adding crayon, charcoal, pencil, appliglue and anything else you might fancy to our piece and then look at completing the work by adding elements of stitch. Once complete – we will seal the work with medium to enhance and preserve.

You will end the two days with a beautiful and unique mixed media collage on your canvas, plenty of further ideas in your sketchbook and a large stash of wonderfully personal materials to play with in the future

 

Warning: these three days are likely to be enormous fun and very addictive – you may well develop a lifelong addiction to this way of working!
