Workshops for May and June – including a new date for my beginner’s workshop – and E17 Designers at the E17 Art Trail.
Sunday 7th June, 11.00 am – 3.30 pm
First Steps In Feltmaking
This workshop is for adult beginners. You will create your first felt picture or piece of table art, as you learn the ancient and fascinating art of feltmaking.
Sunday May 17th, 11.00 am – 3.30 pm; or
Saturday June 27th, 11.00 am – 3.30 pm
Surface Decoration In Felt
This workshop is for adults who have made some felt already. It is designed to extend your repertoire of decorative options – we will be incorporating yarns, threads and silks into felt to produce a unique felted notebook cover.
All workshops are held at Red Door Studios, Masterman Road, London, E6. I will provide materials and equipment as well as drinks and light refreshments. Participants will need to bring a large old towel and a packed lunch. Please bring an apron or wear old clothes!
For the Surface Decoration In Felt workshop please bring a hardback notebook for which you will make a cover. The maximum size (for reasons of workspace) should be A5. I will have some notebooks available to buy on the day.
E17 Designers at the Book-ish Market
The very popular E17 Art Trail will run from 30th May to 14th June 2015. It’s a huge event including open studios, gallery events, markets and exhibitions. The theme for this year is Storytelling, and the E17 Designers are getting into the spirit of the festival with their Book-ish Market on Saturday 13th June from 12.00 pm to 6.00 pm at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre Pub, 53 Hoe Street, E17. All goods will have a book-ish theme. I will be there with felt covered notebooks and sketchbooks, bookmarks and felted pencils.
Look out for more art trails in the coming months – Forest Gate is soon to hold its first arts trail. More news in the next newsletter.
