Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April 2017 – Judith Rowley

 Friday 21st April – My Creative Journey

Textile artist Judith creates textural and tactile surfaces with natural fabrics and fibres bonding together cotton and silk to create a base for “painting” with hand and machine stitch.

On Friday, during her talk Judith will outline how she develops her work, starting with an image, thought or idea following through into sketching, sampling, composing and the range of skills required to produce a piece of 2D or 3D art. Rather than using sketchbooks Judith captures her creative journeys in fabric books, creating tactile pages on which she stitches drawings and samples of work.

Saturday 22nd April – Calico Journey Journal

Why buy a sketchbook for your creativity when you can make your own? During Saturday ‘s workshop participants will:

  • Learn how to construct your own fabric book of handmade pages using Indian cotton which Judith will supply ( £2.00 each student ).

  • Use hand methods of fabric manipulation and stitch to create a book of beautiful pages. Painting with dye will be optional.

  • Make a little book to take home that can be further decorated or used as a travel journal, anthology for samples, sketches etc.

Suitable for all abilities
