3-D Mixed-media Weaving Workshop

Jane Walkley

​Professional workshop, 23 May, 14:30 - 17:30

Using three-dimensional hand-cast Jesmonite (an eco-friendly, acrylic polymer), participants in this workshop by Leeds-based Jane Walkley will create colourful linear structures on a tapestry frame. These small tapestries, once cut from the loom, come into their own as they are manipulated into circles and spirals, allowing their tactility to be fully appreciated. The finished works take on a sculptural quality that melds traditional techniques with new material technology.
