In this two-day workshop we will journey through various mark making techniques to build a palette of textiles, finishing with methods of assembling these elements into a creative piece. There will be a lot of play with many surface techniques such as my own method of no-rules printing, monoprinting, painting with acrylics, foiling, pencils, crayons and pastels.

This workshop offers exciting possibilities with colour on cloth using inexpensive and basic mediums, and gives participants the skills to continue creating for themselves.
