Embellished Textile Collage with Sam Parsons of Studio Sam

Sunday 2 June
10am – 12.30pm and 2pm – 4.30pm

Join designer and creative Sam Parsons to create a modular, patchwork art piece inspired by the colour and techniques of the Easton Pearson Archive.

Design, stitch, embroider, render, bead and compose a textile artwork infused with your own sentiment using a variety of contemporary and everyday materials.

Sam has developed this workshop to help you explore a range of artisan inspired ‘slow’ techniques, colour theory and composition in a unique, flexible and contemporary manner. Walk away with your own abstract work of art.

Your facilitator:

Sam is passionate about creating unique works that are thought provoking, adaptable and can transcend transient fashion. Sam works with a great variety of mediums, processes and themes, depending on the project. There are however, several characteristics that reappear regularly in her work such as folding, colour, stitching and reconfigurability.
