Our next event is yet to be decided.

"Artist in Residence"

I am Kate Horner, an ArtyBird tutor. At the first Box of Beautiful Things event I set up an art studio and brought in some wonderful images I took on a beach in Pembroke to work from them in a concertina sketchbook. I introduced a basic kit that included drawing and textile materials, moving between working on paper and with stitch and felt to make experimental and exploratory pieces.

Often I dye my own fabrics and threads to use, stitching and manipulating these before moving into felt. At my workshops you will be able to watch me and discuss my work with me. I will also try to answer your questions. I look forward to seeing you at one of our future events and if you like what I do there will be the opportunity to buy sketchbooks, drawing tools and media, as well as dyes, fibres and threads to create your own art work.

I look forward to meeting you.
