Knit, Wrap & Bind with Lesley Stothers

A half day creative workshop.

Using simple traditional textile techniques to manipulate unorthodox materials, create a low relief form or small sculptural piece.

Lesley creates one off textile wall pieces, with a contemporary twist. She knits and crochets with wire and uses stitch, appliqué and embroidery with paper, metal, plastic and found objects. Her current work is inspired by mealtimes and family celebrations.

Making spoons from knitted wire and crockery from recycled metal foils, and stitching with vintage table linen, she constructs a surprising view of everything from formal dining to a casual cuppa.

Spend the time creatively interpreting your own personal design source. Lesley will guide you through design and interpretation of your chosen object.

Explore the potential of knitting, knotting, crochet, weave or simply wrapping & binding with novel materials as the substance of your personal project.

Bring a small object, natural or man-made to work from no bigger than A4 size.

E.g. small domestic objects, cutlery, item of clothing or footwear, natural objects such as fruit, seed pods & pine cones or good photographic sources depicting fish, birds etc.

Core materials and tools will be provided.

Participants are encouraged to supplement and collect saved and recycled foils and wire and any items for embellishment such as beads, buttons, interesting ribbons and fabrics.
