Paper pioneer Jennifer Collier creates exquisite sculptures from vintage recycled materials in conjunction with stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. The papers serve as both the inspiration and the media for the work, with the narrative suggesting the forms. Through this marriage of unlikely materials old papers are transformed into something truly unique, delicate and complex.
Most recently Jennifer has been collecting rarely used, heritage stitches and discovering how to translate the art of lost stitches onto paper, as these techniques are an important part of our creative heritage and she wants to continue to invest time in them to keep them in the present, offering them onto future generations. Jennifer is giving new life to things that would otherwise go unused, unloved or be thrown away…
Creartii is very lucky to have Paper Jennifer (follow on Instagram) travel from Staffordshire to work with you on this wonderful workshop, creating a beautiful bespoke bird box inspired by Jennifer’s own work. You will use hand and machine stitch, vintage papers and card, to create a wonderful piece of your own.
All materials are included, and so is refreshments. All abilities welcome.
