Don’t miss the next in our series of ‘Making Conversations’, on Monday 2nd October, with Textile Study Group Members, Mary Sleigh and Julia Triston.
Making Conversation is a series of six online events. In each session, two Textile Study Group members reflect on and share their own experience of creating new work for the Making:50 exhibitions.
Initial ideas and inspiration, frustrations and successful parts of the creative process, together with images of the artists’ work, are included in each conversation. Join us for an opportunity to have a peek over their shoulders and ask questions.
Sessions will be held via Zoom starting at 7pm (UK time) and will last approximately 1 hour.
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.
Date: Saturday 17th June, 10am to 3.00pm
In Sheila Mortlock’s workshop you will use simple print techniques to produce a textural surface that can be used for many projects. Layers of colour and texture create exciting surfaces for work with depth and this workshop shows how it can be achieved with a minimum of equipment.
One photograph for a source of inspiration and colour scheme. This could be an image of a landscape or a garden, flowers, old walls, whatever appeals to you as a colour scheme and gives you a rich source of texture.
If you have acrylic or fabric paints bring some that reflect the colour scheme in your chosen photograph
An old 1” brush, a small bit of sponge
A roller if you have one, although I will bring some
