Running throughout April to July at the Peebles Library and Museum, we are celebrating Making:50 with opportunities for you to meet some of the artists and join in artist led workshops.
On Friday 2nd June, 13.00- 15.00 you can MEET THE ARTISTJULIA TRISTON.
Julia will bring some samples, talk about her Making:50 work, give a demonstration, or be working on a piece, and be available to engage with the public and answer questions about our individual practice.
In this workshop you will transfer a special or intriguing piece of writing into a small textile artwork. You will start by sampling and experimenting with lettering and text styles in free machine embroidery. You will then creatively interpret your piece of writing – which could be a list, a letter, a poem, or a personal manifesto – to emphasise and highlight important elements.
Some pieces of writing as a starting point – lists, letters, poems etc (NB if you have texts that are written in small hand writing, and wish to copy the handwriting exactly, you might need to enlarge your texts on a photocopier before the workshop)
Machine with a drop feed and free motion/darning foot, spare needles and bobbins
Machine embroidery threads
Sewing kit: needles, pins, small scissors
Background fabric – can range from a fine cotton organdie or netting to a thicker cotton or linen – approximately A4 size or smaller
