Textile Art with Cas Holmes
16th – 23rd July 2019
Cas Holmes is coming to the Alpine Experience for a privately booked class which is not open to the public.
Author of several books and articles including the Found Object in Textile Art and Stitch Stories her approach is hands on, experimental with a strong emphasis on using found materials and inventive applications of textile and mixed media processes as part of the exploration of developing a ‘creative language’.
Be inspired by the colours emerging in a garden or changes on the landscape.The colours, textures and changing light over the meadows, fields and landscape can provide stimulus for the narrative, formal or abstract qualities in textile works. Create samples using a range of techniques inspired by locality and place tailored to the individual projects as your ideas develop.
Suitable for artists who enjoy taking time for experimental discovery, guided by Cas who enjoys introducing the serendipity of found materials into the art-making process.
