The venue is only open during courses or during the Open Studio times listed on the home page of the web site. All other visitors by appointment only.
The starting point for this course is a small collection of your own favourite artefacts and a photograph of your favourite view, whether it is indeed the one from your own window, or one from your favourite place to visit. By the end of the week, you will have combined these subjects of adoration into a composition containing both landscape and still life, in the tradition of such painters as Mary Fedden and Elaine Pamphilon.
Of course, your work will have an entirely different quality in that the medium will be textile collage rather than paint, using cloth that you have dyed and printed yourself and using the textile techniques of positive and negative appliqué, as well as free-style embroidery, by machine and by hand.
This course has an emphasis on the careful consideration of colour and composition and is written with the aim of each student completing one highly-worked collage.
