A new term of Contemporary Textiles with the incredibly talented Ricki Outis starting on the 14th September (alternate Tuesdays).  A hands on class for people with some experience in creating artful textiles who would like to explore and experiment with like minded people.  It is an opportunity to bring the personal into your textiles by basing your work on objects which make you feel joyful in our crazy upside down world.  The course includes techniques on colouring cloth & paper, image transfers onto fabric, text on fabrics and free machine embroidery to make personal and poetic fabrics.

A fun, hands on workshop with lots of playing and singing.  Expand your guitar playing by exploring the music that inspired the music we know.  We will be looking at strumming & fingerpicking, chords that move up the neck of the guitar and riffs we can play based around those chords.  Participants should be familiar with the basic 1st position chords like E, A, G, D, C, B7, F, Em, Am, Dm & Bm.
