What you'll do
All participants leave with a piece of individual work. No previous experience required. All materials provided for use during the experience. Each person will be given instructions, the materials they need for the session, some basic colour theory (how it applies to their activity) & where to buy supplies online. In this workshop we dive straight into the world of wire & how to make wearable objects using it. Guests will be supplied with specialist tools to use during the workshop & will be shown pieces that I have created myself as inspiration. Guests will also have access to my vast private design library for the duration of the activity, also access to my experience as a published designer & artist.
I am a practicing artist - specialising in a wide range of arts & crafts. These include: beading/wire weaving, textile weaving, dyeing, felting, free form embroidery, crochet, knitting, paper crafts, journaling & homemade perfume. I have been teaching people how to do all these things for about 30 years. Teaching & sharing what I know gives me great joy. In my classes, I encourage participants to explore & discover their own depths of creativity. I am also a practicing recreational therapist. Everyone has the potential to create & express themselves through using their hands.
I will be providing afternoon or morning tea depending on session. Food allergies & intolerances can be catered for.
Fresh coffee, hot chocolate or your choice of tea will be provided. Also cold drinks.
Wire of all sorts. Beads of different sizes & types. A small notebook for sketching ideas. Use of specialist tools &…
