Nature Narratives – Alice Vander Vennen workshop

Nature Narratives – Alice Vander Vennen workshop

Nature Narratives
As autumn colours arrive, create an evocative and exciting composition that combines the work of our hands with that of Mother Nature’s. Allow the rich texture, brilliant colours and nuanced lines of stitched textiles to interact with the ancient beauty of autumn treasures: imprinted stone, the bending branch, and fragile leaf. We will create an assemblage, cutting, positioning, juxtaposing a variety of elements into a composition that tells a story.
The finished art piece created from these treasures found through exploration or everyday encounters, is subtle and compelling as a new narrative emerges. The finished piece will be a framed composition, that allows the elements of nature to become a part of this visual “poem.”
The instructor will bring everything needed to create the finished assemblage, including copper, textiles, and all framing materials.
Come and enjoy this workshop, taking place right in the gallery surrounded by the art of eleven incredible textile artists on the last day of the show.
Saturday, October 7 from 10AM to 12PM, $50 ($52 after admin fee)

Optional materials: Participants are invited to bring natural treasures: a leaf, a stone, a branch, or a floating feather. It will also be helpful if participants bring a needle, threads, and scissors; and a small assortment a variety of textiles: found, precious, colourful, or fascinating, if possible.
