I am leading a workshop with the 62 Group Summer Exhibition, Making Space, at Macclesfield Silk Museum.
Title: My Life in Silk
I have been using silk as my main medium since the late 80s, incorporating it with other textiles and non-textile materials such as glass, and wood. In this textile workshop I will explain what has informed my work, and the processes and materials I have used and developed. Participants will experiment with these processes, which include drawing, painting, bonding, and machine embroidery. Participants will have the opportunity to use the museum collections as source material to inform their experimental samples. Participants will gain an understanding of the importance of research and experimentation and will take away with them a starting point for further personal development.
