Layered Seascape

layered seascape free motion workshop

Developing your creative style can sometimes feel quite daunting. Where do you start? What do you use as your inspiration? How do you build depth and interest to a piece? Everyone, no matter their artistic talent, can feel like this. The beauty of this workshop is the opportunity to listen to, and be guided by, an artist who has developed a successful style and has worked through all those challenges time and time again.

In this workshop local artist Ellie Hipkin will lead you on a path to creating a beautiful layered seascape piece with both interest and depth.

The layered seascape is created using printed fabrics layered onto a cotton rag paper. Depth and interest is developed by adding some textured printing and monoprinting using real plants and seedheads. You will then add further detail with free-motion embroidery, using the seedheads and grasses as inspiration. (No real sewing exercise needed). 

The cotton rag paper is  lovely medium and works well for for free motion embroidery because it is made from cotton pulp not wood pulp. It is a beautiful paper to work with.

If you worry that you are not artistic and couldn’t possibly achieve something, you really must come. With the guidance and support of Ellie this workshop will inspire you to create textile art with a mixed media approach. You’ll leave feeling much more confident combining different materials, printing, and embroidery together to create your own unique piece of art.
