Workshop/Presentation Details
WA Craft, Quilt & Quilt Show
"Silk, Science and Stitch"
A presentation by Helen Cowans - UK

The colourful, contemporary textile art of Helen Cowans reflects a love of many hand and machine embroidery techniques, mainly inspired by science, landscape and eastern cultures and includes a range of items from 3D structures to large wall hangings. Come and meet Helen and learn how she came to have such a passion for textiles, her early work and inspirations, including studies and art relating to Biology.

"Wild Woman" Stitched Art Brooches

Room 6 at 12.00 noon each day
Sarah's fabulous concept of making lady shaped art brooches to keep or give away is beautifully explained in her very popular new book "Wild Woman - Stitch Art Brooches " You just create the Basic shape with a variety of media, then give each one a personality with a variety of gorgeous embellishments.

"Ratty Tatty Papers"
A hands on workshop with Dale Rollerson - The Thread Studio

Room 6 at 1.00 pm each day
Come and play with Lutradur, Gossamer Fuse, Moonshadow Mists and more on papers and fabrics. Layer, bond and burn – no time for stitch. You will come away with a very individual little house book and lots of ideas for playing at home.
Kit Fee $15.00 Bookings at The Thread Studio Exhibitor Stand

"From Pugin to Peacocks"
A presentation by Helen Cowans - UK

Room 6 at 2.00 pm each day
In this fascinating presentation Helen will look at work influenced by the Gothic Revival Art of Pugin along with India and the Islamic world.

Knitting With Natural Materials
A hands on workshop with Sarah Lawrence - UK

Room 6 at 3.00 pm each day
Knitting with natural materials is always a pleasurable activity, let alone the luxury of the knitted outcome. However, when knitted textiles are combined with the particular properties given by silk fibres, we enter a whole new realm of constructed surface. Workshop gives technique and sampling outcomes for the more adventurous textile artist. PS No knitting involved.
Kit Fee $15.00 Bookings at The Thread Studio Exhibitor Stand

You can, of course, book with us by email or phone for my and Sarah's hands-on any time before the show. We will both have limited numbers for hands-on.

Helen is also giving a 2 day workshop 5th and 6th August after the show and Sarah on 29th July before the show - the info for these will be on our website soon.
