The Octagon Quilters of Westport are hosting Gillian Travis on Tuesday 16th of October at the Westport Woods Hotel on Quay Road in Westport. Gillian is an international teacher of many years. She is well travelled and produces stunning pieces of work, fabric, paint and stitch using innovative techniques. Gillian will give us a workshop, learning how to pain and print backgrounds, taking common wild plants as a starting point. The class will involve screen printing, appliqué and machine embellishment.
On Monday 15th October, Gillian will give a talk entitled "Journeys in Stitch" at the same venue starting at 8PM. Admission is 5 euro and refreshments will be available.
There will be a few places available for those who wish to join into the workshop. The workshop will cost 25 euro per student. Lunch is available in the hotel. The course will run from 10AM to 4PM on the 16th.
