Thursday 5 April / 10:30–12:30 or 14:30–16:30
A fun filled 2-hour workshop designed to inspire and excite a new generation of designers and artists. Led by renowned textile designer and tutor Sarah Campbell, in this two hour session students will create their own sketchbook from scratch using found materials, papers, magazines, fabrics, prints and patterns and any other ingredients they can get their hands on. Using techniques such as collage, sewing, drawing, and colouring students will be able to take their creations home to continue to work on or use as inspiration for school or GCSE projects. Designed for 12-18 year olds, the perfect entertainment for teenagers during the holidays.
A range of materials will be provided but please bring along inspiration and ideas for theme alongside any objects you would like to include in your sketchbook.
