Fabric-ation Workshop with Christine Lethlean

November 2021

Show Details

Christine seeks inspiration from a variety of photographic and painted works for her textile art process and welcomes all those who are interested to come along to at least one class to see how they too, can create a masterpiece. There is fun to be had, layers of learning to stimulate the mind and such great satisfaction in completing your very own textile artwork. Individuals who have participated in one or more of Christine’s classes are amazed with how each piece naturally evolves and how ‘in tune’ they become to what the fabrics, colours and textures are telling them!

                            

In introducing the monthly Fabric-ation Workshop, Christine will take you through a range of artistic and stitching techniques to help build your knowledge, skills and confidence using textures, colours and surface design to compose a textile artwork. You will explore shading, dimension and composition and as each workshop offers something new, there will be an opportunity to work with mixed media and printing techniques. As each artwork comes to completion, students will be guided on how to prepare work for display (framing or hanging) and for dedicated art students encouraged to use your work for study assignments and/or enter into art exhibitions.

                  

 Christine’s style of teaching is inclusive and easy going and students are encouraged to work at their own pace. The word ‘perfect’ is gently placed aside whilst the artistic process, errors included, is in progress. In fact Christine says “the more flaws the better, the more interesting the piece becomes and I have six golden rules I abide by: nothing is right or wrong; no unpicking; mix warm and cool colours; mix dark and light colours; respect the marks you make with stitch;  and believe in yourself!”

.

A requirement list will be available when you have booked in to this class.
