Working with Words Masterclass

Code: M005

Price per place: £375.00

We are delighted to announce that tapestry artist Joan Baxter, will lead a weaversbazaar Masterclass on 26th – 28th April 2019.

This three-day event will take place in a studio in Angmering, Sussex and will explore ways of using text as a source for tapestry design.

In the Masterclass description, Joan says “Over the past 10 years, the research reading that I always do when I’m starting a new phase of work, has moved from technical and factual material towards the work of poets and writers who share the same obsessions as I do. Also, I often find myself distilling my first nebulous thoughts on a subject into a few carefully chosen words, which eventually develop into a tapestry. Words are my first sketches, not visuals.”

On booking, confirmation with full joining instructions will be sent. 

Terms & Conditions: The full fee is required in advance to secure a place.  A full refund will be made if a booking is cancelled up to 7 days before the Masterclass starts. No refund will be made if a booking is cancelled within 7 days of the start of the Masterclass and we are unable to resell the place.
