Velvet Lillies with Bridget Bailey
June 15 - June 16
We are thrilled to announce that Bridget Bailey is returning to The Cotswold School of Arts and Crafts in 2020 to bring another fabiulous two day workshop creating beautiful velvet lillies using her own special techniques.
This masterclass will allow you to create beautiful pieces using Bridgets stunning technique.
This is a wonderful technique for embossing and wiring petals without needing expensive tools. The flowers are very sculptural and keep their shape and the techniques are very versatile.
Bridget has a reputation for intriguing ideas, exquisite making, and for her very particular skills and techniques with the materials she uses.
Her way of teaching focuses on perfecting and practicing techniques as well as making finished pieces so that you leave with real understanding and a good level skill. The focus and attention to detail on this course will improve everyone’s making skills.
Techniques on the course include:
Dying and colouring silk and velvet
Making embossing plates
Making stamens with pollen
