This weekend workshop is all about discovering new ways to use drawing in the development of ideas and visual narratives.
The emphasis will be on experimentation, layers, drawing, thinking, looking, writing, surprises, gut instinct and working with all sorts of materials. Perfect ingredients for the creation of exciting new work!
Claire Heminsley studied textiles at The Glasgow School of Art, although she specialised in embroidery, drawing was always at the core of her work. 30 years ago she set up INCAHOOTS and expanded her work to include illustration. During this time she has worked on a wide range of commissions, exhibitions and projects. Claire works with a broad range of media and consequently has a diverse output, from detailed scraperboard prints, to more experimental sculptural and mixed media pieces for exhibition. Alongside this she has taught design, textiles and illustration in further and higher education and for workshops throughout Scotland. Her design practice feeds into her teaching and vice versa, providing a perfect combination.
