Come and learn the intricate art of bobbin lace making. Traditionally bobbin lace making was used to decorate fashion for the aristocracy of Europe from the 16th Century, later to become a form of currency worth more than gold.
Nowadays, lace can be made from all sorts of fibres including wire, crazy yarns and paper. Vicki teaches bobbin lace making in a contemporary and accessible way. This workshop will teach you some of the basics and will open your eyes to the possibilities of this intriguing art form.

Nov 17 @ 9:30 am – Nov 18 @ 4:00 pm
Judy Wilford: Deep in the Green Forest 17th-18th November @ The Studio

Have you ever walked in a forest where giant trees are encrusted, and the floor carpeted, with the luminous greens of moss and experienced the hushed stillness where noise is absorbed and the juxtaposition of trunks hold a sense of mystery?

This workshop revolves around exploring in stitch the mystery of such a place.

The workshop can involve painted elements: layered fabric backgrounds with intensely stitched foregrounds giving depth to the work.

The design for this workshop will be based on the forests of the Escarpments of the Great Dividing Range near Point Lookout, New England National Park.

Suitable for all levels of experience.

A fabric kit, notes and designs will be available $25.

Please contact me at cjm_wilford1@iinet.net.au if you need any help. Judy W.

Liz Powell: Paper and Stitch 9-10th February @ The Studio
Feb 9 @ 9:30 am – Feb 10 @ 4:00 pm
Liz Powell: Paper and Stitch 9-10th February @ The Studio

This 2 day workshop is all about experimenting with the interaction of paper and stitch. We’ll be including elements and working from the lovely New England environment such as grasses, leaves, found objects, and incorporating stitched elements into a variety of paper manipulations. We will also play with the traditional Korean technique of Joomchi (a type of paper felting best done with the feet and power tools I’ve found) where paper layering and stitch creates new voids and shapes.

You can jump into joomchi with both feet, literally, but I will also be demonstrating and making a piece for everyone so all participants will end up with a piece of joomchi with personal inclusions that you may have brought or collected in the landscape, but if you want to dive in and give it a whirl that will be great! You can bind up a diary of the weekend using an age old binding technique that dates to medieval times using book stitching frames that I will provide. The frames are available for purchase after the workshop if you become addicted.

All joomchi equipment will be provided and all levels of experience catered for.

Neha Puri Dhir: Shibori @ Go Create! New England
Apr 3 @ 9:30 am – Apr 4 @ 4:00 pm

 

Come join Neha Puri Dhir, textile artist from India, for an explorative workshop on Shibori- the ancient Japanese technique of resist dyeing on fabric. Experience the bold interplay of colours while unraveling the mysterious beauty of resist dyeing. Shibori involves different types of folding, stitching, twisting and compressing of fabric followed by multiple levels of dyeing to unfold alluring patterns on the fabric. The workshop will involve learning and working on different types of resist dyeing techniques such as stitch resist, clamp resist and shape resist. It will subtly graduate to contemporary adaptations of Shibori from the traditional ones and will leave you with creative possibilities to explore further.

The workshop is recommended for all age groups. No prior knowledge of fabric and dyes is needed, just come wearing a set of clothes you can get dirty and bring your creativity along. Any basic knowledge of stitching will come in handy. The artist has a vast experience of conducting workshops at varied levels; from skilled traditional craftsmen to young students with no prior experience
