Learn how to make your own textile art inspired by Alfred Wallis and his paintings with mixed-media textile artist Lora Avedian in this online afternoon workshop.

Participants will use the traditional hand sewing technique, appliqué, to create a patchwork style textile artwork inspired by Wallis’ paintings and drawings. You will use cut fabric pieces in combination with simple hand embroidery techniques to create work inspired by the textures and shapes of his work.

Includes video talk about the Alfred Wallis Rediscovered exhibition and materials which will be sent in advance.

£60 per person including materials, booking required.

Materials will be posted to you in advance of the workshop. Booking closes 20 November.
