Textile artist Sam Menzies will present a unique hands-on workshop @ Oak Hill Gallery on Friday Oct 7 & Sat Oct 8 from 10am – 4pm daily.
The ‘Felt, stitch, dye, print bind’ workshop is only $260 for Oak Hill Members or $280 for non-members or point this blog post out to the Coordinator of the Survey exhibition and the first 5 takers of this wonderful workshop will receive a membership to Oak Hill Gallery for One Year.
The ‘Felt, stitch, dye, print & bind’ workshop promises to be a unique, fun way to play and invent an embellished individual visual diary or notebook with fabrics, felt, threads, printing and dying mediums.
Make something special for yourself or begin your journey into creating handmade artworks and one-off unique gifts. Discover your inner ‘ creativity’ and find a new skill, or practice an old one, a place where ideas are encouraged and you only have to go around the block to get it!
Support more sustainable and joyous ways of spending time; work with a local maker and explore the handmade and find inner peace in creating your own unique object of beauty.
