Sculptural Textiles - Drawing with the Unwanted

Sat 17 Sept 2022, 11am - 3pm

Create your own works of art by reusing unwanted textiles in this creative workshop with artist Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck, inspired by Johanna’s practice and our current exhibition by Sheila Hicks.

You will experiment with drawing with textiles, using various techniques that Johanna will demonstrate and share, along with improvising with processes of cutting, sowing, gluing, weaving and assembling. Participants are encouraged to bring any clean unwanted textile materials of your own that you would like to work from, whether scraps of old kitchen towels to garments with meaning to you.  Materials will also be provided on site.

No previous experience are required to participate in this event, however, experienced artists or textiles practitioners may benefit from working in a new way through the spontaneous and experimental approach that the workshop invites.

For those having difficulties with spoken language or with English, Johanna can also assist in French or German. The workshop is very tactile; it is also accessible without detailed vocal communication.
