We've taken a very loose definition of textiles: 'An interlocking network of materials'.
So if you work with metal, threads, yarns, wood, wicker, even clay - we want to see what you can make by interlocking them!
Please ensure you bring your work ready to hang or display!

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
During this one-day workshop we will explore the basics of anatomy and proportion as you discover, develop and refine your skills through life drawing. We will investigate ways of seeing such as sight measuring and the importance of negative spaces. We will be working with a range of media and techniques to develop individual drawing and observational skills in this relaxed, instructive and inspiring workshop.
ABOUT THE TUTOR
A scholarship to the National Art School in Sydney began a rewarding and diverse career as an artist and art teacher. Merilyn Rice has been teaching and exhibiting in a variety of subjects and mediums for many decades however her main loves are portraiture and the human figure. She believes that once we grasp “the basics” we are free to strive for breadth of vision by aiming to see the subject as a whole and not just a bit at a time. Merilyn encourages everyone to draw as often as possible - even doodling at odd moments - therefore enabling us to think less about how and more about what we are drawing or painting.
