Anne Kelly: House and Home workshop


Houses and buildings are a rich source of inspiration for textile collage work. We will use a variety of found textiles, techniques and stitch to create a special piece representing a house or home of your choice. In this one day course with author, artist and tutor Anne Kelly you will be working from your choice of house or building that holds a special memory for you. We will start by using basic but effective techniques taken from her books. Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage that will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. All materials are provided, but please do bring items from your collections and charity shop finds, such as fabrics, threads, haberdashery, buttons , ribbons and lace to personalize and an image to work from.

The workshop is 10 - 4pm
