Two day workshop Sat/Sun 31 August & 1 September 2019, 10.00-16.00
The artist John Piper created atmospheric images of the English landscape and its architecture. Using his work as inspiration we will use the technique of batik – hot wax resist. We will work on tissue paper, paper and fabric and use bleach and inks on assorted papers and dyes on cotton to create atmospheric textures and effects. An exciting course allowing for exploration and discovery. The work will be suitable for further development with stitch. No experience is necessary as the technique will be taught from scratch. A number of samples will be created during the workshop.
