Cas Holmes

Cas5Wild Gardens. A mixed media workshop exploring drawing, marks and lines. Creative exercises in sketchbooks/journals will lead to machine or hand stitched drawings onto fabrics, cottons, combined with paper. Possibilities will arise to create complex layered dimensional pieces in relation to your materials (handkerchiefs, clothing and vintage fabrics). The found materials/paper will further help to develop personal expression and add meaning to your work.Your ‘visual narrative’ will take inspiration from gardens, hedges and wildlflowers/wildlife. The outcome will be development and research work in a sketchbook and small samples/pieces to inform your own practice.
