Artist Louise Presley works with discarded and nostalgic materials; reworking them into new forms she questions the transition from reality to sentimentality, endeavouring to make objects that have personality, purpose and meaning. Join her to try out photo transfer methods using original vintage/retro fabrics, as well as patchwork and applique techniques. You will have the chance to make a bike seat cover, a no nonsense apron, a vintage headscarf embellished with images and text, or a "Saturday night bag" using fabrics from the era, with visual ideas derived from the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning exhibition. www.hopeandelvis.com
