Open Studio : Lynda Monk

18 August 2014 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Open Studio : Lynda Monk

Lynda Monk is a mixed media textile artist who uses non-traditional materials to create textured and unusual surfaces that can be further stitched or embellished. Inspired mainly by rust and corrosion, she stitches, burns and melts materials like kunin felt, Tyvek and Lutradur before adding layers of acrylic mediums and colour. She loves to explore new techniques such as using thermofax screens combined with Xpandaprint and Lutradur to create fragmented surfaces.

Lynda will be teaching a workshop called Creative Surfaces I on Saturday, 18 October; if you’re interested in working with these unusual materials for stitch, her Open Studio will be a chance to speak to her and ask any questions you might have – or, just come along and be inspired!
