An Introduction to Textile Art – July 2021- Christine Lethlean
Are you looking for something a little bit different to make? Are you wanting to discover the artist in you? Christine Lethlean is a textile artist who can turn scraps into works of art. During this class you will learn how to create a piece of art using a variety of different fabrics, lace, threads and more to embellish. This year we will grow month by month with guidance to create our own personal art. You can start with a photograph or a gift card as inspiration or just flow with what is in your head!
A variety of small pieces of fabric will be available on the day for you to use but if you have an idea of what you want to make please bring along some scraps of a variety of different fabrics, lace, trims and threads to get you started. Christine will be bringing along a variety of different frames for purchase on the day. This is essential as you need to know what size you are working with but you won’t know what size until you know what you are making! This is the link to Christine’s website, when you click on the images you will see a variety of different art https://www.christinelethleanartist.org/gallery Make a start by looking at some of the work to see what direction you would like to take.
We have a variety of art work in store for you to come along and have a look at to give you an idea of what you can make.
