Connecting with Nature Workshop with Jane Bevan
Tue June 8 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm| £65.00
Jane Bevan is an artist with a passion for English woodlands, who forages for natural materials which she ties, stitches and binds together to make her artworks. Her materials are those that might otherwise be trodden on or overlooked, such as feathers, twigs, bark, seeds and thorns reflecting the beauty and perfection in the detail of nature.
Join Jane on this one day workshop – starting with a stroll around the local area collecting seasonal examples of nature to use alongside materials provided by the artist.
Back in the Marquee we will experiment with a range of techniques such as tying, cutting, knotting, twining, plaiting and hand stitching to assemble small sculptural artworks.
The workshop is an informal and sociable day designed to help us explore and connect with nature through creative work.
Participants, of all abilities, will bring simple, traditional techniques to natural materials in a playful and experimental way.
