You will be given six serviettes and a tea towel to paint onto..beginning the day with some simple drawing processes, and then developing your motifs into designs.You will learn all about different textile mediums, and ways of applying them ..It’s soo much fun and simpler than you could imagine!
You will be amazed at what you will produce..and the possibilities of making your OWN designs are infinite. This is workshop to ignite ideas, and enhance confidence.
Cath graduated from Curtain University in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Craft! Her focus was textiles, and after graduating, left Perth for Sydney where her first job was with John Kaldor. In this job she learnt all about the real ‘rag trade’ and travelled to European and Japanese Studios 4 times a year.
After a few years Cath began her own design business called ‘Art Park’…two children came along and her world evolved around them..six years later she began ‘Prints Charming’ which was a successful design business with a strong ‘hand crafted’ view on fabrics, quilting, screen printing and stitching. Cath then began a new venture ‘The Happenstore ‘ …. A large space that is retail and workshops and studio…a ‘real’ space for artisans and makers….
She now enjoys focussing her attention to applying art directly on to fabric.
This workshop is a joyful fun 6 hours on Saturday – so you to completely immerse yourself in the world of fabric making.
All workshop materials and equipment, morning and afternoon tea.
What to bring:
Please bring your own lunch.
