Isobel Hall is offering a very exciting 2-day workshop on working with cocoon strippings to create books or bags with medieval inspiration. Unfortuately due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel Isobel’s other course on stitching around a cast.
Working with cocoon strippings
BRLSI 20-21 August
Making cocoon stripping paper from cocoon strippings is easy and inexpensive. Creating your own fabric to colour and embellish is an exciting process. On this action-packed workshop we will make the paper to a required thickness and then add colour and texture. The inspiration will be medieval art and the resulting fabric can be used for a book cover or it can be made for wearable art such as a clutch bag or jewellery.
Day one will be spent making and colouring the paper. Day two will be spent either continuing to make pages for the book or designing the bag. Alternatively students may wish to create a vessel from cocoon strippings.
