Autumn Workshop – Memorable Places and Journeys – with Wendy Dolan

25 September @ 10:00 am - 28 September @ 4:00 pm


Inspired by places and journeys, this course will offer the chance to explore and develop a combination of skills in a creative way.  We all have special places and journeys which we would like to remember. You will be using Maps which we will transfer to printing onto fabric, combined with Freehand Machine Embroidery, Layering Fabrics and other skills, which are explored and developed as you create unique designs.

In preparation for the course I would like you to think about a memorable place or journey that you would like to base your main design on and bring along a map of this location.  It could be an ordinance survey map or similar.  This may be a childhood home, where you were married, a favourite holiday location, your home etc.

You also have the option of incorporating architectural elements in the design.  Perhaps your home, the church you were married in or a local feature.  Please bring some photos, photocopies or drawings of these features, keeping it simple.  Think about a colour scheme you might like to use when selecting thread colours.

Fabric paints will be available for those of you who might like to colour your designs or you may prefer to keep to neutral natural fabrics.

Here are some examples of my work to give you an idea of what we will be aiming for.  Do check out my website as well
