Once your range of sheets are complete you start the exciting process of putting your papers and fabrics together and learn how to assemble them into the form of a book.
You can make any size of scrap-book you wish and create it for a special purpose either to keep all those important bits and bobs you can never find a place for, perhaps a sketch book, or maybe a photograph album the choice is yours….! No experience necessary just bring enthusiasm.
Watch out for new workshop dates! Hoping to run one of these in Lancaster very soon!
Will keep you posted!
Lovely feed back from participants …
“The mark marking workshop was a great experimental session, which took us back to the very basics of creative practice, reminiscent of art and design in my youth. The tools we created were made out of recycled goods and became fun tools to use in a range of methods and processes. A full day of experimentation in a perfect location and environment with lots of inspirational chats, tea and biscuits.”
Cheryl-Ann Glover Cardinal Newman College
“Thank you…. for the course yesterday. I really enjoyed it, and am pleased to have not only ideas for future uses of the techniques but also some pieces to work into!”

Day one: textiles and machine stitch.
Day two: will be working with porcelain using hand building techniques.
Through the weekend we will look at ways of working to incorporate porcelain as an embellishment to the works produced or working towards creating pieces to be impressed into porcelain to create sculptures or vessels incorporating stitch as a decorative element. No experience is needed just enthusiasm for either of both media and works will be fired to be collected or posted back for a small fee.
All materials included but own sewing machine would be desirable though there will be a number provided.
Priscilla creates sculptures that draw upon her life long love affair with here vast collections of odd an curious objects. During this two day workshop, Priscilla Jones will share with you the creative techniques developed through her experimentation and process of making. You will make your very own 3D sculpture inspired by whatever theme you wish… using wire, wax, and found ephemera. You will learn a range of processes including how to construct a wire structure that can be in 3D or 2D using light weight wire and then work into this by creating a surface to hand stitch and embellish with paper, buttons, beads and trimmings. Materials will be provided all you need bring is enthusiasm and some found objects or materials from your own collecting. This is a perfect opportunity to develop ideas you may have started in previous workshops with Priscilla or you may wish to come along and learn a range of new and exciting techniques!
