SATURDAY WORKSHOP - embellished paintings with textiles - Vicky O'Leary

This is a fun and relaxed experimental workshop exploring how to create landscapes and semi abstract landscapes by focusing on the texture before applying any colour.

 Vicky O’Leary will show you how to represent foliage and landscapes by using different textures and using a wide variety of materials including paint. Working on fabric you will learn how to colour and highlight the textures, then finish off with a variety of stitches to enhance the piece.

Places on the workshop are limited and bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis.
