Cas Holmes workshop

I’m just back from 3 days of workshops led by the remarkably talented textile artist Cas Holmes.

Cas taught us new ways to work with old materials, to create surfaces with multiple layers of interest and work within the principles of sustainability. I created two folded books, the first inspired by the broadland landscape:

and the second using vintage family embroidery and other family textiles, and some old crochet and embroidery instructions:
