Explore the possibilities of making wire spoons from fabric, wire and wax with Priscilla Jones. During the workshop you will create lots of different shapes from light weight wire that can easily be manipulated with your fingers tips. You will experiment with using fabric and wax to embellish your spoons and decorate them using trimmings, haberdashery, buttons and hand-stitch.
Priscilla will encourage you to explore your own ideas so please feel free to bring any of your own materials you might like to work with.
During the workshop you will explore how to create a mixed media collage using gardens and birds as inspiration. You will create a variety of experimental papers using mixed media techniques: including, mark making and hand printed textures. Using your prepared papers you will experiment with the process of assembling your collage using hand and machine stitch to create a finished image. No previous sewing experience is necessary, however if you do have a sewing machine please bring one.
