Sketching with fabric

Fancy colour, thread, texture, mixing media and then using a sewing machine? Karen Hall is a textile artist who loves all of these and who is happy to pass her enthusiasm on.

And she’ll be doing just that on 26 and 27 May at the Fibre and Fabric Fair in Harlech.

There’ll be three demonstrations each day, at 11 a.m, 2 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. She will show how she – and how we all – can work with mixed media: fabric, paper, foil, threads, silks, bondaweb…

(And everyone can have a go at free-machine embroidery on her stand, too.)

Some of the makers at the Fair will be bringing sketchbooks. Karen is one, making it clear that you don’t need paints or pencils to keep a sketchbook, a fund of ideas and tests and inspiration:

Food for thought, and for lots of ideas. Here’s some more of her work…

And here’s another reminder – the Fair is open both the Saturday and the Sunday, 26 and 27 May, it’s in the Memorial Hall in Harlech, and … there will be teas, coffees and cakes available. As well as lots of things to try, and some to buy, and some to inspire.
