Join multidisciplinary artist, Zoë Nash, for this mixed media short course that takes a slower, more reflective, mindful, and methodical approach to making your marks.
Sitting firmly within the realms of contemporary drawing, we’ll explore the surrealist concept of automatism, persevere with repetition, delve into doodling, cut out with collage, and combine fabric, stitch and paper. Students will discover how a subtle mixed media approach can add diversity and energy, and explore how re-purposing can both elevate and give new life to found materials, providing additional layers of context and meaning.
Working on small embroidery hoops, the class will also be shown how to create a sampler that features some rudimentary stitch techniques. These can later be incorporated into their work/s. Helping broaden your existing practice or prompting you to begin one, this three-day workshop will reinvigorate your creativity producing some unexpected, exciting, and compelling results.
Please plan ahead and use the Materials List provided. Suitable for all levels of experience.
