Creative Workshops and Courses, Harwich, Essex

Bev Caleno – Backlit Trees (textile art workshop)

£65.00 | 18th April - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM | Spaces available: 10

All Materials Included

This is a textile and machine embroidery workshop, utilising different fabrics and techniques to produce finished a artwork.

You will be painting a background directly onto fabric to create a backlit effect as the basis for your work. Interesting tree forms and textures will then be created using Tyvec and added to your piece, with emphasis on composition and design. Finally you will work with free motion stitch to add detail, particularly in the foreground, giving a further sense of depth.

Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
