Fibres West 2019

Sunday 7 July – Saturday 13 July 2019

Quietly and Gently… Fiona will be teaching her 5 day Quietly and Gently workshop.

Sometimes we just need to be quiet, to slow down and be peaceful.

This workshop explores the beauty and elegance of working white on white.

Working on paper, participants will explore a myriad of ways to create texture and meaning on paper, using different materials and techniques. The limited palette provides both challenges and opportunities, with serene outcomes.

Embossing, printing, cutting and stitching will form part of the week, and bookmaking will bring it all together.

Participants will create a sample book of techniques and learn Coptic binding. The final project is a personal book working whit eon white with techniques chosen by the student.  A slip case will also be made to protect the book.
