Description

The Makers Studio Central Coast Inc. two day workshop ‘Sculptural Embroidery & Resin Embedding’ with Meredith Woolnough on 16 & 17 June 2018

This technique-based workshop explores the unique embroidery processes that Meredith uses in her artworks. Over the two days you will create a range of embroidered sculptures. The sewing machine will be transformed into an unconventional drawing tool and you will be in control of every stitch allowing your creativity and imagination to run wild. By stitching onto a combination of woven and water-soluble fabrics we will create a range of experimental embroidered artworks.

The workshop also includes an introduction to basic resin embedding and casting processes. Small objects will be embedded into resin blocks creating freestanding sculptures, small jewellery pieces of unique sculpture stands for your embroidered creations.

Suited to all levels. No experience is necessary but basic sewing machine operation skills will be helpful.

Dates: 16-17 June 2018

Time: 09:30 to 16:30hrs
