Textile Technique Toolbox: Printing with Louise Wells
March 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm| $35
BUT WE HAVE 3 SPACES ON SATURDAY 18th MARCH 1-5pm : CLICK HERE
WAFTA members are invited to come along and get some inspiration for your WAFTA Challenge piece, Wearable Art or as a taster for your textile techniques toolbox!
Places are limited due to space restrictions in the studio, so get in quick! A second Textile Techniques Toolbox will be held on Saturday 18th March 1-5pm for members of WAFTA WASG (Wearable Art Study Group). WASG members book here: https://wasgtttprinting.eventbrite.com.au
We will cover the basics for a variety of ways to add colour, pattern and texture to fabric and other items without the need for expensive equipment or materials. Take home samples of screen printing, stamping, Gelli Plate printing, fugitive media, dyeing and more.
These workshops are designed for the absolute beginner as well as the more advanced wanting to have a play. The aim is to go home with lots of small samples, the skills to make your own print mat, screens and stamps and the enthusiasm to explore further!
Louise Wells is a textile artist based in Perth, Western Australia. She has always had a love of textiles right from when her left handed Nanna tried to teach her to crochet right handed. A long break from a full time textile practice in her 20′s to raise her children allowed Louise to learn and explore many areas of textile interest for pure enjoyment. Her current textile practice is the result of this development and life experience. She has a passion for colour and finds pattern in architecture and nature a continual inspiration. Louise is fascinated by the hidden stories we all have, often using this as a theme in her work.
