Draw like a Surrealist (MMEDw189-3)

If you like the idea of incorporating intriguing textures and graphic imagery into your art then this short workshop is for you. We will be working with several drawing techniques such as frottage, entopic graphomania and automatic drawing used by Surrealist artists such as Max Ernst, Andre Masson and Gherasim Luca. These Surrealist methods push beyond the rational to the imaginary and fantastical. Suitable for beginners.

Weaving as Painting (MMEDw185-6)

In this workshop you will learn how to make large tapestry weavings using ordinary cardboard. Participants will make looms using cardboard with slits and use a wide range of ordinary and unusual materials such as wool yarn, raffia iridescent yarns, fabric scraps and assorted ribbons and fabric trims. Techniques will begin with setting up the warp of the cardboard loom, doing basic weaving with a tapestry needle, rya knotting to create fringe and texture, and the overhand knot to finish the piece off of the loom. These various materials will be used to create a “painting” with fibre. Most materials are included but participants are welcome to bring items from their own personal stash. Suitable for beginners.
