DRAWING WITH PAPER, CLOTH AND THREAD: Textiles weekend

We will be considering surface and space within composition and different ways of introducing content and detail. Through mark making, collage, layering and stitching processes, participants will explore and develop possibilities leading towards a new piece of work. With supportive mentoring and shared inspiration, the sessions are designed to encourage participants to notice detail, challenge usual approaches,and be aware of their creative responses; developing the confidence to take risks with their ideas and nurture their own creative voice.

Gizella Warburton makes contemporary textile and mixed media pieces using slate and weathered wood, printed and woven elements, and sculptural forms and vessels. She exhibits her hanging and sculptural artworks and installations widely and teaches in a variety of settings. Her skill and enthusiasm are infectious.

Gizella Warburton says of her approach:

My work explores an intuitive response to linear, textural and light detail within landscape and surface. Abstract compositions evolve through the tactile and contemplative process of drawing with paper, cloth and thread. Mark making is an intrinsic part of my practice: shadowed, scratched, stained, scarred, pierced, wrapped and stitched...                                        

Unique objects include framed, hanging and sculptural artworks and installations.  Developments include works on slate and weathered wood grounds, printed and woven elements, and sculptural forms and vessels.
