Préniac - A Textile Diary with Jan & Jean
Jan & Jean need no introduction to the 'textiles world' .
On this course we will work with mixed media and stitch to record day to day images and experiences of this lovely area.
We will include hand/machine stitching, bonding and the use of the embellishing machine as appropriate.
The end of the course we will leave with a visual diary singing with images and textile fragments that record a special place.
This will be Jan & Jean's fourth visit to Studio Préniac.
Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn are both renowned international textile artists. Together Jan and Jean have written many books, as well as taught and exhibited in the UK and overseas.
Landscape in all it forms has fascinated Jan for several decades. Fleeting changes of light and subtle nuances continually intrigue and challenge her to create work where elements have been simplified or exaggerated whilst still retaining its entity.
Jean's works reflect a continuing fascination with pathways and journeys, and the routines and rhythms of life. Her surfaces hint at echoes from the past and the many aspects of moon cycles.
