TUTOR AND WORKSHOP INFORMATION
Bob Adams, USA Discharged Landscapes
Bob likes to teach in a way that brings out the individual in each student. He doesn‟t want to end up with a class of clones, believing instead that every student has their own unique way of working and a very personal feeling for what they‟re seeking to achieve. He‟s able to draw students out of their comfort zone and inspire them to take what they have to offer in their own direction. Bob fosters problem solving. Students inevitable face problems at some stage of the process and he want them to be able to work things through and come up with solutions. He feels most students don‟t give themselves enough credit for their potential and want s them to develop on a very personal level, rather than being spoon feed. Group and individual critiques are always a feature of the class encouraging students to look, reflect and extract the learning they‟ve had, and how to take it forward. Discharge techniques using bleach and Thiox on black or hand-dyed cloth have now become a hall mark of his style, which over the years has moved away from the early inspirations of life drawing and landscape, to a more abstract feel with an emphasis on color and line. He doesn‟t feel right when he‟s not working and can‟t be away from color, line, shape and problem-solving for very long. In his art, he can lose himself.

Discharged Landscapes
In this 5 day class you will learn how to discharge using various methods. You will spend 3 days learning how to safely use the chemicals and various ways to discharge. We will cover the proper way to use bleach, Thiox and Formosol and the proper way to stop the destructive action. After three days, you will clear away the chemicals and bring out the sewing machines, take your newly formed discharged pieces and create your masterpiece, creating and developing them into a composition of new and exciting art work.

Helen Banzhaf UK: Machine Embroidery: Painting with Stitches Helen Banzhaf was born in LLanwrtyd Wells in mid-Wales. She attended Brighton College of Art and graduated from St. Martin‟s School of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in Fashion & Textiles. Since 1990 Helen Banzhaf has been teaching in the Fashion Department at Lewisham College. The machine embroideries are worked on a domestic sewing machine, using 100% cotton threads on cotton calico. The pieces are framed in glass and soft wood frames, which she makes herself. When I first began making decorative textiles I had to have a real piece of ceramic in front of me as my inspiration. Its shape, form and more often than not its colours, spurred me on with the design and its pattern. I could re-create this three-dimensional piece in stitches.
Nowadays, most of my depicted „vessels‟ don‟t exist – they are figments of my imagination! And what I‟m finding most exciting at present, is that my initial design bears little resemblance to the finished embroidery; the patterns, shapes and colours change and evolve as I work the piece. Machine Embroidery: Painting with Stitches Let Helen lead you on a journey from inspiration and the development of ideas through to the creation of your final works of art. You will be expertly guided throughout this hands-on course as you develop the skills that will enable you to master this highly enjoyable technique. You can then effectively apply these skills to create a wide range of beautiful and interesting embroidered textile pieces. Witness your ideas come to life in a multitude of stitches. Helen will provide source material which will include Art Deco ceramics; it was these which were the initial inspiration for her machine embroidery obsession and she still revisits them as subject matter. Students are welcome to bring their own artefacts to use as inspiration. Shapes, forms, colour and patterns will be themes for the embroideries. This course is suitable for students of all levels.

Carol Barton: (USA) Pop-Ups and Sculptural Books
Carol Barton is a book artist, curator, and teacher who has published numerous editions and has organized both local and national shows of artists' books. Her work is exhibited internationally and is in numerous collections, including the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She served as curator for the Smithsonian Institution‟s exhibition Science and the Artist's Book. She has taught at elementary, high school, and university levels, as well as conducted adult workshops at art centers across the United States. She is on the faculty at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she teaches courses in bookbinding and book structures. She has had residencies at the Bogliasco Foundation in Italy and the Sacatar Foundation in Brazil. Her pop-ups were featured in National Geographic Magazine‟s July, 2005, article Zip Code 20812: It‟s Only A Paper Moon. Her most recent books, The Pocket Paper Engineer, Volumes 1 and 2, are artists‟ how-to workbooks on paper engineering.

Pop-Ups and Sculptural Books
Discover the magic of the sculptural book through exploration of three-dimensional and pop-up forms. Students will learn a variety of pop-ups structures, beginning with simple non-adhesive cut-and-fold popups and progressing through a series of more complex glued constructions. The class will also explore several sculptural bindings, including the basic accordion books, the carousel book, and the tunnel book formats. Both the carousel (a nested series of accordion pleats) and the tunnel book (two accordions holding a series of page frames) are theatrical set-like constructions employing layers of images. Students will receive instruction in bookbinding tools and their use and will learn basic binding skills such as proper folding techniques and book cover preparation. Slide shows of historical and artist-made books will be presented. An ideal session for teachers, graphic designers, creative artists, and anyone who likes to play with paper.

Kate Campbell-Pope: Australia 'Materials, Method, Meaning'
Kate Campbell-Pope has been working as an artist in the area of fibre construction for the past 15 years. Her work has been exhibited widely across Australia. She has taught various artforms including sculpture, environmental art, and fibre in workshops, art institutions and schools. Kate‟s work combines elements of adapted basketry techniques, lo-tech sculptural construction, and stitch. She explores ideas around healing, regeneration, and ecology. The publication „Craft Unbound – Make the Common Precious‟ by Kevin Murray, features Kate‟s practice.

'Materials, Method, Meaning'
This workshop is for those wanting to question their practice in relation to materials, methods, and meaning. What underlies our individual choices of materials and methods we use as artists/craft practitioners? What is the meaning or idea we are trying to convey in our work? These questions will be posed as we cobble, weave, and stitch our way through the week, using several fibre-based techniques as our starting point to create a number of small fibre sculptures. Come with an open mind, a visual diary, and a bag of trash and treasure to work with.

Mary Crehan UK: Footsteps and Journeys
Mary Crehan is an Irish textile artist and tutor living in the UK. An experienced teacher and organiser of community projects across the age ranges, she now works freelance in mixed media textiles giving workshops, talks, and exhibiting widely. Mary‟s current work revolves around aspects of history, memories and relationships. She is interested in creating personal narrative works using a combination of recycled fabrics, paper and hand stitching. Other works take inspiration from the Irish landscape and viewable on her website. Mary is a member of the Embroiderers Guild and Regional Organiser for the young Embroiderers. She holds City and Guilds level one and two in Creative Embroidery and is a founder member of TAGS (Textile Art Group Suffolk)

Footsteps and Journeys
Students will be encouraged to explore personal „footsteps‟ in their life and discover ways to express them in a narrative textile piece. Experimenting with photo copy transfer, rubbing, stamping, and bonding can be fun and lead to new creative ways of expression. Looking at hand stitching possibilities will give balance and time for contemplation. No experience is necessary other than that of being prepared to join in with your „story‟ and bring along some items to support it, maybe a letter, photo or garment. The tutor will have samples, visual material and handouts. No materials fee. Small charge for handouts Contact mary.crehan@hotmail.co.uk if further information is needed.

Dr Pamela CROFT, AUSTRALIA: TEXTURED – A VISUAL NARRATIVE
The focus of the workshop is storytelling as a visual narrative. The „story‟ will include the combining of research relating to the Aboriginal People and their Country now known as Geelong combined with the colonization/ settlers history. These elements will be woven together into individual artworks that express the realities and the potential for reconciliation. Pamela Croft believes strongly that harmonious beauty can result, far beyond what people may expect when visually combining complex histories, memories, and relationships by mapping „Country‟ imagined from an aerial perspective. She describes this concept as „bothways’ methodology and philosophy. Expect to use materials traditionally employed for collage in the Western world along with found objects, fibres, tree resins and ochres. Personal reactions and explorations will be valued along with a group „talking circle‟ process. Artmaking processes and techniques will be easy to follow steps and will be demonstrated by the tutor so that participants with varying levels of experience can enjoy, relax and experiment. I will work with individuals on personal unique projects incorporating different techniques to contribute to your artistic and

cultural knowledge. A small materials fee (up to $20 each) will apply for items the tutor will make available for the workshop. TEXTURED – A VISUAL NARRATIVE About the workshop - play a lot; talk and laugh a lot; discover! Our working process will begin each day with a Yarning circle:  to exchange information stories about our research collected about location areas;  creating personal narratives by developing new directions into compositions of work using;  tutor to demonstrate techniques for using mixed media;  to provide feedback about our processes and artworks;  for participants to develop relationships and connectedness with each other, examining sense of place, identity, and belonging.  Repetition and working as a bricoluer will be important to our concepts;  The workshop evolves into producing individual works that could be mixed media, sculpture, collage, assemblages, book art, fibre art, altered works that includes a combination of treasured fabrics, papers, found objects, hand stitching, text, stamping, dyes, inks, branding with a heat tool, embellishments, insertions, experimentations with natural materials; fibres, weaving, books, boxes, tins, photos, prints; sponging, and stencilling.

Michele Eastwood, Australia Stitched in Memories
My background in fibre textiles began with working as a costume designer for various contemporary dance Companies in Perth in the 1980‟s. In the 1990‟s I completed a degree in Fine Art, majoring in Textiles from Curtin University. From then on I started exhibiting my textiles work which has always been based on stitch, either hand or machine stitch or a combination of the two. The quilting aspect of my work came about with my first viewing of the Stitched and

Bound exhibition in Perth. The idea of quilt as a suppository of memory via the fabrics and history contained in them has been the guiding force behind all of my recent work.

Stitched in Memories
This workshop involves taking an image, recent or old family photographs or your own drawing or photographs of pets, people, objects, travel, homes and interiors, plants, flowers, cars, children‟s drawingsin fact anything that is special in some way to the maker. Using a variety of techniques these photographs or drawings are transformed into images that can be stitched onto a cloth background. Using simple stitches based on running and tacking, the images are „drawn‟ in stitch onto the background fabrics. The background fabric is pieced together from old clothes, linen, old embroidery, fabric scraps, blankets, tablecloths or new fabrics in fact anything that can be sewn together to evoke the feelings, emotions and time of the chosen image. From your photographs (or drawing) and personal collection of fabrics you will create your own beautiful hand stitched finished pieces of art.

Angie Hughes, UK Shimmering Velvet Revelations
Angie is a textile artist and tutor living and working in Ledbury Herefordshire UK. She has taught textile and mixed media art subjects for over 10 years working part-time as a tutor in schools and colleges nationwide and is soon to be teaching in Germany, Spain, France, Australia and New Zealand. Her artwork is informed by a diverse range of themes from text and poetry to natural forms and untamed gardens. She is currently working on a theme called „Higher than Birds‟ inspired by a balloon ride over Bath and the Cotswolds attempting to identify pattern and shape in the landscape viewed from above. Angie‟s current favourite base material is cotton velvet which she will colour, discharge, overprint, add layers and stitch, „I like the subtle „quilty‟ effect you get when you stitch into velvet and organza‟. Angie also enjoys working with a mixed media technique and following the success of her first book 'Stitch Cloth Paper and Paint' she is presently making samples for a follow on publication.

Shimmering Velvet Revelations –
An exploration of the natural landscape in printed, collaged and stitched velvet. The natural topography of Australia offers a vast scope of inspiration to the creative textile artist. Students will begin by studying aerial photos of the Australian landscape to formulate composition, colour and form for their work. Then over the next few days we will cover  Colour- using permanent dyes. Removing colour – using bleach in various ways  Over-printing – having fun making print blocks relevant to your chosen subject  Using transfer foils – a lovely shimmering surface. Collage – sweetie foils and silk snips to add a different texture. Machine Embroidery – the whole surface is covered with organza and stitched.  Cutting away – removing some of the organza to reveal colour beneath by cutting away or burning off with a heat tool.

Polly Jacobs Giacchina USA EXPRESSIONS IN TWINING
The view of art expressed by Polly Jacobs Giacchina is through sculptural forms and structures. Weaving with natural materials allows the artist to respond to her surroundings and develop design ideas. The emphasis is on work inspired by the textures, colors and unique components of nature. Reinterpreting and transforming natural materials creates a more meaningful complex form. Polly‟s sculptures and wall hangings are shown in galleries, museums and have been included in exhibitions in Europe. She has been published in Fiberarts Magazine, American Craft Magazine and Craft Arts International, Basketry Traditions and Beyond and 500 Baskets.

EXPRESSIONS IN TWINING
Explore the interlacing basketry technique of twining. We will twine with different materials to create a natural birdhouse and a uniquely designed “People Rattle”. Pliable materials (supplied by instructor) will lend themselves to creating the twined shapes desired and experimentation with other natural materials will be discussed. Those students with prior experience will be encouraged to experiment with other sculptural forms in combinations and groupings. Participants will work at their own pace, and all levels of weavers are welcome. The scale of the weaving material will change when we take twining to a smaller format to develop woven beads and brooches. Discovery of the endless possibilities of twining will be our goal.

Sachiko Kotaka, Australia Complex Felt – Beyond the Boundaries
I am an Australian artist who immigrated from Japan in 1978. I have been studying and practising many mediums of art including drawing, painting, folding (Origami), performance art, film making and felt. I was introduced to feltmaking in 1994 by Polly Stirling with whom I worked for three years and during this time we developed 'Nuno-felt'. I was also her support teacher for many years including two of her Fibre Forum workshops. During

this time, I have developed several unique techniques such as „Calamari-felt and variations. I continue exploring my other art forms, as I experiment with the possibilities of feltmaking.

Complex Felt – Beyond the Boundaries of Feltmaking
This class aims to push the boundaries of feltmaking to develop the ability to create complex felt pieces for intermediate to advanced feltmakers and felt artists. Participants will be encouraged to work within their own individual style and level, and to work playfully, spontaneously, intuitively and expressively in a friendly, supportive environment. One of the key elements in this workshop is that you will be recycling old felt pieces into new works. Most feltmakers have pieces stashed away from previous attempts that didn't quite work out. They will be asked to bring a few of these pieces which will be used as raw materials. Participants are also asked to bring some of their treasured fabrics and fibres including materials which may not be easy to felt, such as knitted and woven fabrics of varying weights for exciting and often unexpected results. These could be challenging to combine in surface designs or the structure of the piece.

ELIZABETH LADA GRAY, AUSTRALIA: FABRICATION:STORYTELLING WITH IMAGES &TEXT
Elizabeth Lada Gray is a storyteller. Using wood, cloth, paper and found images she works into base layers with paint, graphite and ink. The final images are positioned on mountboard and supported by text in pencil/ink. Some artworks are oil on canvas with collaged images, aged paper and ink. Artworks are based on extensive research that links with personal experiences and historical perspectives. Trained as a textile designer and vocational teacher, Elizabeth Lada Gray has lived in Tasmania, Hungary, Italy and France. Since 1982 she has exhibited in Australia, Europe, Asia, Canada and the USA, totalling 10 solo and over 50 group exhibitions and represented in numerous public and private collections

Fabrication: images and text
Become a gleaner, a fabricator, an image-maker, a storyteller and a libertarian, all in the one workshop. String words together to express your feelings and beliefs about significant people and/or events in a simple sentence, a poem or a story. Based on these words, layer paper, fabric, cottons, found objects, images and paint and then boldly tear into the layers to find the innermost part of your story that leads to private insights and chance encounters. Expect to create finished artworks supported by narrative. The workshop is limited to 12 students. No prerequisites.

Luna Newby: (Australia) Step Out of your Old Shoes ...
Luna Newby has been making custom shoes, teaching shoemaking and mentoring for over 25 years in the UK. Since moving to Tasmania 6 years ago, her work has extended into „art shoes‟ and having occasional exhibitions for the sheer pleasure of creating and learning. Luna‟s creative works has taken her in the direction of using a wide variety of materials and techniques – usually associated with textile arts, jewellery or sculpture – whilst working within the footwear form. She is excited about using traditional methods from the decorative arts in her art shoes – weaving, carving and printmaking being the current passion.

Step Out of your Old Shoes ...
You will learn how to make one pair of lasted shoes or ankle boots from a variety of styles that you can see on my website on the workshop page http://www.lunaboots.com You can pleat, scrunch and paint, punch shapes in to and out of leather to make these shoes your own. The shoes you create may be earthy, ethnic, elegant, comfy, colourful, contemporary, funky, fanciful favourites or a combination of any of these. I think that footwear is a real expression of who we are and/ or who we want to be. The scope is as enormous as you'd like it to be.

CATHERINE O‟LEARY, AUSTRALIA: CONTAINED: FELTED OBJECTS
Catherine has been making felt for 20 years. She has worked extensively as an artist in residence in schools and has been involved in many large community projects.

SANDY WEBSTER, USA Idea to Form – a Master Class Sandy Webster is an artist currently working in mixed media. After several years working with basketry as her primary medium she went on to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts with honors from Western Carolina University and her Master of Fine Arts from Norwich University at Vermont College. She lives

with her husband in western North Carolina. In addition to her studio work, Sandy Webster has written articles and served as a juror of fiber-related exhibitions while teaching and exhibiting internationally. Her works have been shown throughout the US and internationally. She has been published in Fiberarts Design Books 1V, V, VI several Lark Publications as well as Handwoven, Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot, and Textile Fibre Forum. Sandy has taught, lectured and juried throughout the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. "My art is narrative, a story retold with paints, pencil, collage and collections. Each work is a personal expression of time, place and thought. It is what I call “evidence of experience” garnered from my writings, sketchbooks and the things I gather that have meaning beyond their intended purpose. Materials such as found objects and images are collected for their references to past and present. Soils that are ground into pigments for paint can let me fix “place” onto the works. My writings, urged by a need to document thoughts and reactions to time and events, have more recently become part of the artwork….as much for their calligraphic style as reference to the subject. Idea to Form – a Master Class
This class is designed as an exploration of the path from idea to object. Students will bring form to concept and find their own unique voice in the making. We will begin with simple quickly-timed exercises that take less than twenty minutes and are designed to be a starting point for individual ideas that inspire a visual form. Using materials and techniques that are familiar and/or of interest to each student we will begin a body of work based on those concepts. Because of Sandy‟s areas of expertise and the interests of many of her previous students in Australia, her suggestions for forms are books, altar pieces, screens, boxes, baskets and textiles ... any fibre based form that is appropriate for the concept and material choices of individual students. It is an opportunity to not only explore one‟s own path but to witness the expressions of others. Sandy will use her time, knowledge and enthusiasm to encourage and instruct students who are embarking in new directions or revisiting earlier passions. Please contact Sandy at www.sandywebster.com prior to class to discuss your area of interest, experience with materials/techniques and any questions you may have regarding the class. Open to all levels
