Regular Minerva Arts Centre users Minerva Textiles organised a two-day workshop on mark-making on fabric and paper, using mono-print, stamping, resist with masking tape, and more, led by Viv Arthur of Art Van Go. Whoever thinks that art is an easy option occupation, should have seen the exhaustion on everyone’s faces by the end of day two. The concentration, dedication, creativity, and enthusiasm from all the participants was humbling to behold. Viv is a great teacher and if you ever get the chance to attend a workshop with her, snap it up. As you can see from the images here, the students in Llanidloes produced sophisticated work, in their varied, individual, styles – styles some didn’t even know they could express!
Viv came in the Van, of Art Van Go, packed to the brim with the textile art equivalent of a toy shop and, of course, we had to shop – it was only polite. Students snapped up the Golden Interference colours we had used during the workshop, and sketchbooks and interesting papers, tools and all manner of media. Scrumptious!
Thank you Viv!!
If you are inspired and want to join in, Minerva Textiles group meet at The Minerva Arts Centre, in Llanidloes, on the third Wednesday of each month from 10.00 until 1.00.
