Do you like to get creative at home? Whether that’s making cartoons, furniture, pottery, prints, fabrics, or clothes? Then we have the group for you!
This is the second session of our exciting new group ‘The Crafty Corner’, a space where you will get to explore, experiment, and express your creative side. In each workshop we explore a story from the museum’s collection and create an artistic response to its themes, craft process or medium.
In this session we will be visited by artist Emily Gubbay. She will be showing us how to create colourful patterns on fabric, using plants, flowers and a steaming technique called bundle dyeing. All the flowers Emily uses are UK grown and we will be looking at objects from our collection as colour inspiration!
These fabrics can be used on the shoes that you created during our last session. Don’t worry if this is the first time you’re visiting, you can come learn the process and use your fabrics in anyway you like!
