Learn to draw in a purposeful way, one that will actually support and enhance your tactile discoveries

Develop your drawing style and most importantly your ‘perception’ of drawing. I often hear the words ‘I can’t draw’ – but are you drawing in a way that will help & support your tactile work?  This workshop will ‘free up’ your drawing style; help you kick start a new project or inject some much needed energy into your practice; but most importantly it offers you exciting opportunities to translate your drawn marks into stitch and cloth.

Its practical, fast paced and not for the feint hearted: have a good breakfast and an early night in bed!!!Explore large scale expressive drawing techniques and exercises, you’ll learn how to see with fresh eyes. Don’t panic over the ‘D’ word!  Drawing is not a dirty word & you don’t need to feel like you can draw to take part – my aim is to alter your perception of what a drawing can be and to show you useful ways to draw that will actually help your tactile creations.

Once you have analysed your drawings and understood how to find ‘gems’, you’ll discover how to transform your drawings into textile works with ‘Stitch circuit training!’  Discover a vast array of sewing machine and needle punch techniques to help you further translate your imagery and produce a dictionary of marks as a constant source of reference.- Developing our recently discovered drawn gems the afternoon brings together all the workshop elements as you create a tactile sample inspired by your new mark making methods.  Then finally we will review and evaluate your developments and consider how you will incorporate these new ideas into your current textile practice.
