CEG London Summer Workshop 2017
Join us in London for our annual Summer Workshop, each year during the first week in June, we bring in exciting teachers from across the country and beyond. This year, we will be learning to knit with copper wire and the fine art of doll making.
June 6 & 7
In this workshop you will cover the basics of knitting with copper wire and create small sculptural pieces and lace knitting samples and experiment with freeform knitting. You will learn techniques for hammering and shaping your work, along with means of colouring copper using green patina solutions, black patina and heat. You will also learn to seals pieces with shellac, varnish or wax.
June 8 & 9
In this workshop you will create a one of a kind art doll. You start with creating and stitching a fabric collage for the doll body and learn how to use a water soluble stabilizer and decorative stitches to create lacy thread embellishments. Lucy will then guide you through the creation of both flat and sculpted faces and hands with individual fingers. Finish with a little hand embroidery and beading or add purchase trims. Your doll can be simply elegant or wildly elaborate.
