Dyeing paper using plant materials + a book
Paper will be be dyed using a variety of plant based dyes. We will then change the surface of the paper, using the marks made during the dye process to guide the stitching, cutting or embossing of the pages.

A book will be made using the simple concertina form with added pages or small objects stitched into the folds.

It will be a weekend of exploring possibilities using simple materials & techniques that you can use at home.

Express your ideas by working with natural and made materials
Express your ideas by working with natural and made materials to create wonderful 2D and 3D structures/collages. Explore the possibilities of various materials and how to shape, bind, glue, stitch, solder or wire them together. Inspirations are drawn from art works, nature, the built environment, history and memory.
