Mindful layered landscape workshop

with Mariana del Castillo

This workshop offers an opportunity to respond to the patterns of nature using eco dyed and remnant fabrics. Quietly considering the landscape participants will layer fabric similar to collage. This process will allow a personal response to country and place. Participants will be introduced to slow stitch, a focused creative technique that adds additional texture and depth to the finished landscape.

Ages 13+

Materials:

Provided by tutor: eco dyed fabrics, fabric glue, needles, variety of cotton and scissors
