A one day experimental workshop which will stretch and expand your use of media, as well as hopefully introducing you to new possibilities you have neither the space nor opportunity to engage with at home!

This class is an offshoot of the one day sketchbook class, enabling you to play freely with a whole range of materials in a truly experimental way which will hopefully help you develop and take forward ideas and embryonic thoughts you may have tentatively explored in your sketchbook.

In the morning we will focus mainly on soft media such as fabrics, threads, yarns, and paper, trying out new ways of joining and combining the material to stimulate ideas for possible projects.

In the afternoon we will introduce a range of ‘hard’ media, such as wood, metal, wire, plastic, and of course we will discuss also the possibility of combining soft and hard elements in future outcomes.

We will provide a range of media for you to experiement with, and basic tools to work with.

We also invite you to bring any materials you may have collected at home to add to the collection!
