Past Workshops

In March 2015 Lisa Walton came down from Sydney to run her Permission to Play class. This surface design class focussed first on making patterns on fabric using a variety of techniques. Then the fabrics were assembled into a collage. Lisa encouraged everyone to play with colour and texture and to not worry too much about planning. While it was a lot to cover in two days, the participants had lots of fun and everyone was pleased with the results. You can see the results in this gallery.
