Textile Art Workshop with Andrea Hayes 14th May 2022 @ 11am
Textile Artist, Andrea Hayes will guide you through how she creates her beautifully embelllished gilded waxed fabrics used on her textile artworks. These are delicately placed and stitched onto hand painted backgrounds using machine and hand embroidery.
You will create your very own seascape/landscape. There will be examples to view and work from on the day, or you are welcome to bring in your own image allowing you to create a very personal unique piece of art for your home.
Sealed fabric/workshop packs will be made up to use for the workshop.
Sewing machines will be available at the workshop or you are welcome to bring your own.
This workshop will take place in our spacious 1st floor Workshop Studio (please note there is no lift available)
As per NI COVID advice 19/02/2022, we recommend you wear a mask or visor for the workshop unless you are medically exempt.
We will provide hand sanitiser, hand washing facilities & sealed refreshments.
Time 11am - 3pm
Based in Cookstown, Co.Tyrone, she creates art work from her home studio alongside being a part time Tutor with SWC where she teaches Arts & Crafts within the community. Andrea thoroughly enjoys guiding and helping others in creative projects/workshops and classes and regularly facilitates workshops for adults and children in art centres/community groups and school settings.
Over the years Andrea has developed a distinctive style in her artwork where she combines her love of painting, fabric, metal and stitch. Inspired by the nautral landscape around her, Andrea loves nothing more than interpreting our beautiful and dramatic mountains, landscapes and coastlines of the Irish landscape.
These are presented in mounts and frames and sold through a small number of specialist outlets and galleries as well as through exhibitions.
