Monday 9th April – Jennie Rayment – Talk 'Twiddling and Fiddling Textures'
This skinnyish, reddish-haired, slightly wacky Brit is totally obsessed with 'Nipping and Tucking' - fabric manipulation and surface texture. Unique in her field, she's now internationally known for her quick, simple, innovative and original techniques with manipulated material and her hilarious lectures with real ‘Strip, Show and Tell’.
Although much of her work is created in simple calico, known as muslin in the USA, her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric and used to make quilts, wallhangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen and of course fashion garments and accessories.
