You will finish the term with a journal full of ideas, notes and experimentation, and a series of textile/paint/collected item collages. You can use the collages you make as finished works in themselves, or as studies for subsequent paintings, prints or textile pieces.

 

 

SLOW-STITCH FULL APRON WORKSHOP, adults

(Picture coming soon...)

Weekend workshop, Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 August, 10.00-4.00

KU-RING-GAI ART CENTRE, Bancroft Park, 3 Recreation Avenue, Roseville NSW 2069  T: 9424 0310 E: artcentre@kmc.nsw.gov.au

Enjoy plenty of time for hand-stitching your heart out in this two day workshop. Making a cross-back apron suitable for household or garden work, we’ll be using an assortment of old, used, remnant and discarded fabrics and give them new life as a completely unique, utterly essential piece of equipment. Save your clothes, bank balance and sanity wearing your creation and pat yourself on the back for not sending that old clothing off to landfill. The apron will comfortably fit up to about women’s size 16, and has no buttons or ties.

There is some machine sewing (so it’s good if you’ve had some experience - but not strictly necessary), cutting and assembling involved, but we’ll have lots of time for decorative, meditative, repetitive (and not so repetitive) stitching along the way. And good conversation, of course!

Please bring along any fabric you’re keen to use (old doilies  tablecloths, jeans, whatever) or use some from my stash. If you have embroidery or fabric scissors please bring them too.

There will be a materials fee for thread and cloth - to be advised.
