Explore the marking, manipulation and re shaping of fabric using a range of approaches. These will include simple print and hand stitch methods to mark cloth, pleating, folding, and manipulation methods to structure the surface.
Including and attaching small objects in a creative way using hand stitch.

For those that have attended Stitched and manipulated Paper Works, this 3 day workshop gives you the opportunity to capitalise on ideas from the 2 day paper workshop and move into fabric interpretations with an extended understanding of the possibilities of design and composition. Those who have not attended the 2 day workshop will work more directly from the reference material you bring with you on the theme in the form of maps, arial views, memories, sense and knowledge of a place special to you.
Attention will be given to the development of ideas, composition and surface.
Ideas will be supported by presentations, individual and group discussion
