Bianca Padidar will lead a special drawing workshop using mixed media to create expressive landscapes through stitching.
Participants will work with layers of papers and fabrics, collaged, appliqued and bonded as a substrate to draw upon. Drawings are then worked into the textural surface to develop landscapes using threads, both hand and machine sewn.
