Here are the details of a creative workshop I am running on Sunday March 13th at Beans Coffee Shop Gallery in Bolsover near Chesterfield. It's a lovely cafe gallery and the lunch(made by proprietor Karen)will be delicious! I would love it if you can join me for a day of mark making, collage and surface embellishment inspired by a memory of a special person or place. I'll be bringing lots to inspire and have been rummaging through my vintage papers and making up creative packs for the day. Hope to see you there.
Recording Memories using Paper, Stitch and Mark Making
Wish HH 2010
Sunday, 13 March. 10am – 4pm
In her work Helen creates original framed artworks using a variety of media. This one day workshop will introduce you to creating marks with ink, paint, pastel and pencil. Combining these experimental patterns with vintage papers you can create an original artwork. Inspired by capturing the moment, Helen will help you work toward recording a vivid memory of a special person, place or occasion. You can also experiment with surface embroidery to fuse together the layers of your piece. Suitable for beginners as well as experienced artists, and inspiring for creative journallers and scrapbookers. Materials provided with some for sale. Bring photographs to inspire you or work from memory and instinct like Helen.
£45 including lunch.
