The Art of Making with Textiles and Paint

Friday 13 April 10am–4pm

Part of Workshops at the Tack Room

Using a metre of material, fabric paints, pens and assorted household objects, participants will learn a variety of special techniques that can be easily recreated and used at home. The emphasis will be on exploring techniques for making unique fabric designs.

Jean Fryer uses paint as a medium but her love for painting was eventually superseded by her passion for fabrics. She now combines the methods and materials of these medium on fabrics to embellish her stitched textile panels.
