About your workshop:
Create your own textile vase using contemporary mixed media techniques including dissolvable fabric, sculptural appliqué, machine embroidery and hand stitch. During the day you will also experiment with paint, ink and dyes to ensure each piece is unique. Each vase will be formed around a glass vessel making it perfect to house a candle or fresh flowers.
There are a number of skills to be enjoyed, using dissolvable fabrics with machine embroidery, applique, sculpting your vessel, as well as a experimenting with mixed media led by Emily.
Skill Level: For all levels
“I create bespoke textile instillations mixing media and building up tactile delicate surfaces. I work and rework my pieces with paint, dyes, bleach and ink, burning and layering until finishing it with hand stitch. I find beauty in flaky walls, overgrown buildings and encrusted surfaces; this is something I recreate in my work. My pieces evolve and grow with time, incorporate history with layering and sometimes the tiniest mark made or stitch changes a piece dramatically it’s this detail that excites me.
I studied at Leeds College of Art and Design between 2006 and 2008, which resulted in a passion for Photography, Textiles and Fashion. I then attended the University of Cumbria, graduating in 2011, with a 1st Class BA Honours Degree in Contemporary Applied Arts – specialising in Ceramics, Embroidery and Printed Textiles.”
