With Amanda McCavour

Dynamic, Sculptural, Textured

Tuesday August 20, 2019 | 10 AM - 4:30 PM   

+ $35 Kit Fee payable direct to Instructor

Location: Wellington County Museum & Archives

Construct dynamic, textured, mixed media surfaces with machine embroidery and water-soluble stabilizer. In this workshop with Toronto-based artist Amanda McCavour, participants will be encouraged to experiment with an assortment of materials like plastics, papers, and yarns to create a variety of samples exploring different texture and colour combinations to create sculptural embroidered pieces. The $35 kit fee includes all materials. Participants are responsible for bringing their own sewing machine (including extra needles and bobbins).  

Amanda McCavour uses a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations. She is interested in thread's assumed vulnerability, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together. McCavour is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades. In 2018, she had solo exhibitions in Annapolis Royal (NS), Antigonish (NS), Stratford (ON), and Tulsa (OK).
