In just over two weeks I will be working with British born Sydney based textile artist Jo Fowles at my local textile hub, Harvest Workroom. Joanna's work is primarily process driven with a focus on hand elements and mixed media. She experiments with large-scale mark making, wood, paint, dye, shibori, photography and screen-printing techniques to produce abstract geometric digital craft designs. Over three days will Jo will take myself and a small group through experiments with mark making, dye, shibori and open screen-printing techniques to produce exciting hand crafted work.
Images of what I can expect to encounter can be found on Jo's blog! I'm ready to get my hands dirty (literally).
