Squiggle, Line & Dot – Mark Making

11738020_10153016593382951_5945652342693449020_nIn this workshop we will use a variety of methods to create marks on both paper and fabric. Using unusual tools, inks and paints we explore line, pattern and composition that we can use as personal symbols and our own unique language. We can combine this work with other fabrics and papers for presentation as books, work for further exploration or as finished pieces.

This workshop is suitable for all levels and paper and fabric artists.
