Event description

Description

Abigail invites you to join her in her studio for a weekend of working with mixed media sketchbooks. Aimed at those who usually create through textiles, but who want to spend time developing and creating ways to gather, store, and work upon ideas and inspirations through sketch, collage and mixed media.

Students will bind their very own simple sketchbook, using various papers, preparing pages ready to use. Abigail will show participants ways to approach the blank page, and then take inspiration from a short walk around the nearby Lea Valley Marshes, using the sketchbooks to gather ideas and materials to work from, and take through into future textile work.

Suitable for anyone at any stage of their artistic career or journey. Please note this is not a traditional drawing class – students should be open to trying new ways of working in a sketchbook.
