CLOTH AND MEMORY - SELF PORTRAIT IN FABRIC & STITCH WITH SARAH TOOHEY

  • Midland Junction Arts Centre 276 Great Eastern Highway Midland, WA, 6056 Australia (map)

Explore identity and culture using stitch, textiles techniques and preloved fabrics. This workshop is inspired by Candy Lee’s Taiwanese flora fabric and the connections and memories we associate with fabrics.

In this workshop we will ‘collage’ a self-portrait using pre-loved fabrics and a variety of textiles techniques including applique, reverse applique, machine stitching and hand stitch. This quick, sketching approach is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Please bring a few small pieces of fabric that remind you of a time, place or person to incorporate in your portrait.
