Carol Waddle - Art on the Rocks
Guest Speaker Meeting July 10th 7:30pm
I love landscapes and mountainous regions and having hiked extensively in the UK and the National Parks of SW America and discovered the Rock Art and artefacts of the people who once inhabited the canyons, I have a wealth of imagery upon which to draw for my work. My work which ranges from felted hangings, experimental tapestry weaving, hand/machine stitching to beading and wire-work. I often combine different techniques/media to create sculptural 3D pieces or as a textural base to stitch into.
Our next workshop is on Tuesday 10th July - If you require more information about this please email firstname.lastname@example.org

You don't need special skills or even to be an active stitcher. With us you will find plenty of inspiration and people to teach you.
We normally have a speaker who brings a presentation and examples of their work or pieces from their collection. Alternatively we organise a mini-workshop evening for those attending to try new materials and techniques and these are sometimes combined with social evenings. See our programme page for more details of what is planned for your intended visit.
