What to expect

These 6 sessions (10, 17, 24, 31 May and 7, 14 June 2022) are for anyone with an enthusiasm for textile and mixed media arts, from beginner to experienced. Held in the newly opened RAFT Studio at 168 Deepcreek Rd, Torbay (under the hall at St Mary Church), Auckland. Book for the sessions, pay either online or in person. Ideally you will come to all the sessions and build your skills, however if you can only make a few, you will still enjoy and learn new skills. Expect it to be the start of an obsession! Dip into a selection of media, experiment then produce your own artworks using your new textile and mixed media skills. Work with fabrics, papers, metal, paint, print, dye, stitch, beads and more to make creative art. You will learn to view almost anything as a creative tool, including a sewing machine, hammers and candles! Each few weeks we will introduce a new technique or material and then develop this over the next sessions, some techniques take longer than others to work through and you are encouraged to work at a pace which suits you. This is for beginners and improvers alike and is led by an internationally experienced artist and author. Sewing machines are available to borrow when required, though it would be fabulous to get you using your own machines if you have them. Any ‘hard to find’ materials or ones needed only in small amounts are provided on a cost basis.
