Course Description:
Taking a series of natural 3-Dimensional forms as our starting point we will explore the structures through various drawing and construction techniques, building up a collection of experimental samples. This workshop invites us to look closely at structures that are formed by insects and plants, often involving disruption of a host organism or created as structures within which change will take place.

Alice’s process-led practice brings together recording, collecting and interaction with the landscape. Alice is author of Natural processes in Textile Art, which promotes a way of working creatively with what is close at hand, making creative responses that are in tune with natural processes.

Materials will be provided for this workshop.
