Paint, Print, Collage and Stitch

In this workshop I will show you how to create beautiful and unique papers built from a variety of paint and print techniques. We will be using these papers to create your own original collaged designs into which you will then stitch. If you've never tried stitching on paper before be prepared for a serious addiction!

Matisse - From Inspiration to Stitch

This is one of a series of courses for those with some experience of textile art who wish to explore the creative process.

More About Gina Ferrari

I am a mixed media artist who for the past twenty years has been working primarily with textiles, both as a practicing and exhibiting artist and as a tutor in adult education, specialising in machine embroidery.
