Tactile Sensibility in Woven Tapestry with Sue Lawty

Responses to a richly nuanced coastal environment

11 – 15 JUNE 2021        £525 + materials
Pease Note – this course has been re-scheduled to June 2021 because of COVID restrictions and so anyone booking on this course will be required to pay in full.

Sea, sand, geology, rock, light, movement, mark, shape, pattern, colour, rhythm, tone, texture, time…. this five day workshop allows space to respond to the stimulus of the richly nuanced coastal environment. During explorations along local beaches participants will collect ideas through visual and written notes and photographs to inform thinking and design.
Back in the studio a beautifully curated selection of materials including natural handspun hemps, raphia, papers, linens and luscious silks, will be available for the weaving of carefully considered samples and small pieces to push ideas forward. Quiet tuition and guidance will help students experiment and investigate structure, colour, materiality and composition, and thus develop a heightened sensitivity to subtle textural nuances and concepts. Participants will leave with purpose and motivation to pursue their own individual enquiry. Teaching is individual, personal and relaxed.
