"Anna uses silk fabrics and threads to create both flat and relief pieces. She will introduce her workshop with a presentation about her practice as a fibre artist and demonstrate with pictures and fabrics how a project usually develops from inspiration to design, execution and final selection.
Using a basic vocabulary of hand stitching, the group will sew together different pieces of fabrics and found objects, playing with colours, texture and patterns, learning different ways and techniques to create an even susrface from fragments. Equally important in this workshop are the aesthetics of the final piece and meditative quality of the hand-working process. Previous experience with hand sewing and embroidery is an asset, but not necessary" (taken from the Newfoundland and Labrador Craft Council web site)
The workshop (for 2 days) is only $50.00 and lunch and many materials are included. There are still a few openings.
