textile artist Priscilla Jones and ceramic artist Julie Miles.
At Higherford Mill, Gisburn Road, Barrowford, Lancashire

Saturday and Sunday 1st-2nd February 2014 10am-4pm £145 per person
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.
Maximum of 8 participants.
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!

Spend the day learning how to create scrap-books and journals out of your old fabrics, scrap paper/card and haberdashery.
This is a great way to experiment with techniques such a stitch, collage and surface decoration to make something that is personal to you. We will explore the use of paints, inks and dyes to experiment with interesting effects on your sheets and these can be manipulated in different ways to enable you to create some stunning results.
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….
£48 per person

“I loved every moment of the Art on a Boat workshop – from the warm welcome, the great food, the stunning scenery and the amazing opportunity to spend some time learning new techniques with two very talented artists who shared their ideas and working practices with us. I came away full of ideas and can’t wait to come on another one.” Emma (one of our workshop fans)
