Sketchbooks and Journal Making

Sketchbooks

Saturday May 10th 2014

10.00-2.30pm

£38 per person

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.

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.

Lost & Found Workshop

Angel of Tea

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!
