Hen's Teeth Art : Embroidery Hoop collage
27th April 2019
I am delight to have Viv of Hens Teeth back at Hope and Elvis
Viv's practice comes from a lifelong and deep need to make, draw, stitch and paint. Viv has worked specifically with vintage textiles, paper and haberdashery since 2000
We will take a 7" embroidery hoop and to a back ground fabric, apply a collage of either your own imagery or Viv's screen printed characters, as a focal point.
Applying scraps of interesting vintage fabrics, trims, laces and ephemera, with appliqué and hand embroidery. Creating a finished piece with a wonderfully textured surface. A great way to use those tiny scraps from your stash.
Using the hoop to steady the application of the process and then to finally frame your artwork, which can then be hung on the wall, as a finished artwork.
Viv will provide an embroidery hoop and a variety of vintage scrap fabrics and ephemera. Together with a selection of screen printed imagery for use in your work.
£85 including all materials and 2-course lunch - 10am-4pm
