Norman Sherfield is coming from Eureka, California to give a Textile Sculpting workshop at the Stour Space gallery.
SATURDAY, 8th of February, 2014 12-3pm
I knot around found objects to create small sculptures using a basketry technique known as knotting. It is a simple overhand knot which is knotted around a core of waxed linen threads. With variations of this simple knot, which is repeated over and over, I am able to create a variety of shapes, textures and color patterning. I will be showing the process of starting a sculpture and some of the tricks of the trade.
Bring scissors and friends.
See you all!
