Travels in Textiles with Anne Kelly 8th & 9th August 2020
Anne is an award winning textile artist, author and tutor based in the UK, exhibiting and teaching internationally. Her three books for Batsford represent her project and collaborative work. Anne’s heavily embroidered fabric collages are reminiscent of tapestry work and her signature stitching technique is applied to a variety of surfaces. She uses mixed media and print to further embellish her work. Anne ‘s work is represented in private and public collections in the UK and abroad. She is listed in the Crafts Council Directory.
Anne’s second book ‘Textile Nature’ was launched at the Knitting and Stitching Shows’ in 2016. It has been reprinted and sold around the world. Her third book ‘Textile Folk Art” was published in August and links her continued interests in working with groups, nature conservation and folk art. Her third book ‘Textile Folk Art’ was launched at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate in 2018.
She is currently editing her fourth book for Batsford ‘Textile Journeys’ due out in 2020, and working towards a solo show in the UK in 2021, we are delighted that Anne will be back at Hope & Elvis this year.
Description– Travel, memory and collections remind us of places we have been or would like to visit. Make a personal and meaningful piece for a special place (actual or imagined) of your choice. Working from techniques explored in her new book ‘Textile Journeys’, Anne will be using printing, fabric collage, fabric and paper lamination, hand and machine stitching.
You will be aiming to complete a folding book or hanging piece during the course. Look through your collections, selecting old and new pieces of fabric, ephemera and decorative paper to use for your piece. It is helpful to decide on a theme or place and colour scheme before you choose your materials. Any specific links to the Welbeck estate are useful.
£180 includes Materials & 2 course lunch
