"How do I begin to convey
this in cloth and how to tell
the stories..."

Mapping Your Travels

2 days: 25th-26th August 2022   Fee: £230

“I am sitting on a train, looking out the window, thinking about the landscapes, towns and hamlets we are passing by. How do I begin to convey this in cloth and how to tell the stories, histories and about the lives of the people and places seen?”

What students will achieve

Working from a collection of photos or postcards, old receipts, maps and brochures, we will create a folding book or collaged piece using these elements. The resulting piece will be a personal response to a special place, journey or event. Stitch, drawing and collage will be used and this course is suitable for hand and/or machine stitching. It is helpful to choose a theme (a special place or visit) and colour palette before you begin the course.
