This three-day site-specific workshop will use the landscape around Tversted as inspiration for textile-based work. The starting point will be a walk where observing the marks and mending of the landscape and how these illustrate the histories of industry and making in the area will serve as inspiration. Using found marks to inspire simple mordant prints, local dyes collected around the studio, piecing and hand stitch we will explore ideas that evoke a quality or sense of place informed by this unique location. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and will include time spent both inside and outside the studio.

Price dkk 2.000,-

ABOUT
Claire Wellesley-Smith is an artist, educator and writer based in Bradford, West Yorkshire. She is currently a doctoral candidate at the Open University researching slow craft activities and engagement with personal and community heritage. She specialises in projects that use local, natural colour, created from home-grown and locally foraged plants. Dyes and stitches on reclaimed cloth are used in slow processes that allow time for consideration of methods of production and narratives of use. Claire uses archival research as the starting point for her work, looking at locations and community stories. Cloth, dye and stitch are then used as carriers of the natural and social history of place. Her book Slow Stitch: Mindful and Contemplative Textile Art was published in 2015 by Batsford, London.
