hand stitched dolls and figurative soft sculpture
In the last few years the issues around recycling, sustainability, mental health and wellbeing have led us to look at traditional crafts with a new appreciation. Many traditional crafts used hand stitching, scraps of fabric and their own ingenuity to create beautiful quilts and clothing. Whilst these skills were born of necessity and poverty we can now appreciate and the work and beauty that has built up within these traditional processes. They have an honesty, a soul and a story. We can learn much from studying them and whilst we would not want to copy, we can incorporate their values, philosophies and techniques into our work today.
For in person classes I teach at Art venues in Europe and USA. Places are Limited to small classes.
The only in person courses I have booked for 2021 are at my local art centre: Stable arts in on Facebook and Instagram. Dates are changing so please contact them direct. At present there are short taster 3 hour courses on Kwandi, Boro and Slowstitch and a full day Intuitive doll making course booked.
