Thames-Side Stitchers have invited Shelley Rhodes to come and give a talk entitled ‘Exploring a Theme’ on Thursday 28th October via Zoom. In her talk Shelley will show how she takes an initial idea or concept through various stages to exhibiting finished work. Examples are based on her latest work which investigates coral bleaching and the effects of plastic in the oceans. She demonstrates how she explores ideas through drawing, mark-making, collage, print and photography. She will explain her processes and techniques while investigating materials, always taking the ‘what if’ approach, as she develops ideas inside and outside her sketchbooks. You will see how she creates samples, records ideas, develops designs and work towards the finished pieces. We have space for up to 10 visitors, so if you would like to join us, please see the information on the poster and get in touch by Monday 25th October.
