  • 6 hr
  • 60 British pounds

Service Description

Jenny's O'Leary will be in the studio where we will be looking at working on different papers. What better way to record the beauty of the beginning of a plants cycle than using inks and wax to record the different shapes, colours and textures of seed pods and seed heads. The beautiful shapes and colours of the plants will be the inspiration to create batiks on different papers using Jenny’s contemporary interpretation of a traditional technique. Working with hot wax and inks and traditional and non-traditional tools to make individual pieces of work. No experience is necessary as the technique will be taught from scratch. Its a great opportunity to try a new skill. The finished pieces will be suitable for adding to with stitch at home. Please bring images for inspiration, they can from a magazine or photos you've taken on your meanderings. The tutor will provide cartridge paper, tissue paper, inks, soy wax, pva, bleach, brushes etc. This is a great opportunity to further advance your Mixed Media techniques, without the expense of the specialist equipment. You will need to bring Interesting Papers from your stash of varying sizes, if you have them. Images for inspiration. An apron Refreshments included but please bring your lunch.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations & Refunds Bookings for the workshops are made months in advance, therefore it can be difficult for me to resell any places at short notice. Workshops require a great deal of planning, financial commitment, supplies and tools, as well as paying staff. As a result, cancellations can result in lost revenue. This will greatly impact on the business. Ideally, I don’t want either of us to be out of pocket. You can cancel your space on a workshop up to two weeks before it takes place. This two-week period allows me the necessary time to try and find someone to fill your place which I will endeavour to do through word of mouth and social media. If I can fill your space you will receive a full refund minus £10 admin fee, to deal with the process of issuing your refund and finding an alternative person to fill your space. However, please appreciate if I am unable to find someone to take your place, you will not receive a refund. I do understand that there are sometimes unavoidable situations so am happy to discuss any exceptional circumstances you may have. To cancel your place on a workshop, please provide me with a written notice via email; Unless I have acknowledged your request, you shouldn’t consider your request delivered! If I don’t respond within three working days, then please send a follow-up email or call me. Refunds will be made in the same way as the payment was made, ie. Payments paid by a credit card can only be refunded to the same card. Cancellations by Fabric Paper Scissors I am entitled to cancel any group or workshop at any time subject to the repayment of any deposit and fees received in respect of the booking which has been cancelled. In the unlikely event of a cancellation by myself or a guest tutor, I will provide a full refund within 5 days of the workshop date. My liability is only for the cost of the class. If the class is cancelled, you are liable for any costs incurred by you including materials purchased in advance, travel or accommodation.
