Cas Holmes 2019

How to book

Workshop 1: Mark, layer, stitch – the sketchbook workshop

2 days: 19th-20th August

The overlooked details found on a daily walk or favourite place combined with the use of found materials can be rich resources for inspiration. Cas will show how these found materials are rich resources for inspiration and will explore creative ways of developing ideas through mixed media – including dyeing and staining pages, drawing with found objects, and stitching and layering. Suitable for artists who enjoy taking time for experimental discovery, guided by Cas who enjoys introducing the serendipity of found materials into the art-making process.

Workshop 2: Layers, Lines & Images – Textile Books

2 days: 22nd-23rd August

Use an old book, maps and found printed materials as a starting point to create a new work. The materials, text and references you decide to use will direct the content and processes used from layering and cutting techniques through to stitch, dye and print. (This is not a book-binding course.)
