We will start the day at Dunsley Cottage the lovely fisherman's cottage in the seaside resort of Staithes. Enjoying Tea and home made biscuits before making our way down to the shore to sketch, collect and find inspiration for an afternoon of textile design based on the seaside. You will have 30 mins to take in the scenery, forage and collect driftwood, shells, seaweed, seaglass and to take pictures or sketch the beach & pretty seaside harbour. Each person will have a seaside themed picnic lunch to eat whilst we are on the beach. We will then meet back at Dunsley cottage to sew, stick, decorate and stitch a textile square. Throughout the afternoon we will create individual artworks but sit together in small groups in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere both inside the cottage and out in the pretty yard. Jules will offer direction,guidance and support throughout. There will be an art and textile hamper full of supplies complete with a selection of fabrics, fabric paints,decorative items & colourful textures that you can use in your own hand made textile design. Producing a piece of collage and textile art in the form of a 20x20 cm square decorated fabric quilt block.
