A Closer Observation

This class is predominantly for those who have previously studied on Exploring Place at the Granary Studio.

A Closer Observation gives you the opportunity to take a more detailed look at your surroundings in order to truly understand the world around you. Part of this workshop will be spent outside – looking, listening and touching – to collect information from the environment. This material will be documented with drawing and writing. Back in the studio your collections will form the starting point for experiments with paper, cloth, stitch, mark-making, collage and printing to create a unique and personal record of your exploration of place.


The participants will bring:


  • Sewing Kit (needles – large and small scissors, tape measure, pins etc)
    Hand sewing threads in a range of thicknesses – black and white and 3 colours of your choice
  • A variety of heavy and lightweight fabrics – an excellent choice would be:
