Nikki Parmenter Bonding with Marine Magic

Would you like to create a fabulous mixed media/textile piece based on marine flora and fauna? Do you enjoy experimenting with bonded fabrics, plastics, recycled materials and embellishments? Then this is the workshop for you.

You will use a wide variety of techniques and processes including bonding materials, manipulating fabrics by heating, stitching and tearing, hand, machine and free machine embroidery, collage, wrapping, embellishing, painting, recycling and upcycling, shibori, plastic entrapment, manipulating funky foam and embellishing.

You will create a vibrant, colourful underwater scene teeming with fishes, sea horses, shells, corals, sea weed, crustaceans and other creatures. Richly coloured and embellished forms will swim through a blue / green ocean, weaving around sea weed and corals.

Giving you an insight to techniques you can apply to your own practice.
