Nautical Threads: Layers, Lines, Images

Schools and arts award

The workshop programme got off to a good start with two workshops led by Cas Holmes and Tania McCormack on 21 September and 5 October 2013 for teachers and Arts Award candidates.

Participants explored different ways of creating lines, marks and layers using a variety of media and techniques including stitch. They will be taking what they have learnt back into their schools and creating a textile piece relating to the Nautical Threads theme. At the end of the year the individual pieces will be shown together to form a collective whole.
