Textile Collage 1 day Workshop

Saturday 31st October 2020

Art Haven is excited to have talented multimedia artist Sally Reynolds from Mahana leading a one-day workshop designed to explore your creativity and thriftiness. Sally will teach the concept of slow or mindful stitching techniques along with the principles of collage. The workshop is suitable for everyone from experienced textile artists to beginners. As long as you’re happy wielding needle and thread you’ll be ready to collage.

Sally’s practice is based on reusing, recycling and reviving textiles, so you’ll get to dive into her suitcase of scraps! Participants are welcome to bring sentimental pieces of textiles, linen, heirlooms to incorporate into their own piece.
