Silk paper making is a fascinating, versatile technique and this workshop will teach you how to create both 2D and 3D forms and combine these skills with hand embroidery. Firstly we'll explore the different techniques to create the silk paper itself, using forms to create a 3D paper. Different elements can be added, such as dried flower petals and angelina fibres to create paper that is unique to you. As the day progresses we'll move on to adding hand embroidery to the silk paper, using different threads and embellishments. You'll be supported to create at least one piece of textile art using your silk papers. By the end of the workshop you will be proficient in creating two types of silk paper, know how to choose and add elements into them and have completed (or be well on the way to completing) at least one piece of textile art. You'll also have a range of silk papers to use after the workshop and ideas on how to use them. All materials are included, however if you have any dried petals, threads or other elements you would like to use please feel free to bring them along. If you have one, please bring a basic embroidery kit. A jam jar or similar is useful, but not essential. Please be aware that the 3D silk paper may not be dry enough to use for hand embroidery during the workshop due to the techniques used to create it. However, you will have learnt all of the skills to work into it at a later date. The workshop runs from 10-4 and is held at Articentric, Dundas Street West, Saltburn TS12 1BL. All materials are included and the workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. The workshop materials used can be messy so please wear suitable clothing or bring an apron.
