Using small cards and images we will look at developing rich, mixed media paper and cloth stitched surfaces, reflecting your own interests and ideas. The focus will be on hand stitching* as an extension of mark making, and various means of layering. Textures and surfaces will be created with photocopies, waste papers and cloth. Work guides and samples will be available to demonstrate other approaches with the techniques including machine and hand stitched samples.Techniques of distressing, layering, stitch which have been adapted from use in Japanese textile and paper crafts.
