Tuesday 23rd April – Start time 7.00pm
Join our TasteXtiles event with Textile Artist and Lecturer Nicola Perren, who will take you through a fun drawing/mark making workshop, which can be used in the classroom.
Thinking about Drawing for Textiles can be enjoyable but also an unnerving experience. In this quick workshop, we will use collage and mark making to create small abstract drawings suitable for further translation into textiles.
If you wish to take part on the night, a list of materials to collate will be included in the booking confirmation email. Alternatively you can watch the demo and try later. The session will also be recorded for future reference.
Nicola is a freelance designer, maker and tutor with a studio based in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire. Having spent over 20 years as a f/t senior lecturer in Textiles at the University of Huddersfield, their experience teaching weave, drawing for textiles, craft and design has led into a practice that springs from drawing into textiles.
Nicola has a BA [Hons] in Textile Design and an MA in Contemporary Art, this mix of approaches to practice then led onto a PhD [Activating the Amateur in a Crafts Practice] which celebrates making and creativity in non-formal learning environments.
THE EVENT IS RUN ON ZOOM.
