Requirements:

Bryony provides lots of materials and ephemera, and everything you need to complete a sculpture will be available. You do not have to bring anything with you. However if you would like to use some of your own fabrics and bits and bobs in addition, the following list is a guide to what may come in useful.

A selection of fabrics that you would like to use to cover your sculpture. These can be small scraps or larger pieces. A mixture of patterned fabrics, plain fabrics and a variety of textures will be helpful.

Any found objects or ephemera that you could use for the features of your animal. Marbles, Buttons, Beads, Old Jewellery and watch pieces can work well for eyes, beaks and claws.

Consider how you would like to present your sculpture, it can be freestanding, or you could display it mounted on a plaque or using some form of stand – twigs and branches, domestic objects, blocks of wood. Please bring anything you might like to use as a method of displaying your sculpture.

A selection of sewing needles, embroidery needles that are sharp, sturdy and long will be most useful.
Needles will be provided, but it is nice to have your own to choose from.

Bryony Rose Jennings:

I am a textile sculptor living on the beautiful Hampshire coast.

The Textile Menagerie is my imaginary story land of creatures.

I use reclaimed textiles in my work,

a soft, worn medium that carries the imprints of lives previously encountered.

Old cloth, conveying a sense of history, lends itself perfectly to my endeavours.  My making process is slow, manipulating fabric into form,

allowing a personality to develop organically as I wrap, fold, stitch and stuff.

I aim to weave a little soul and magic into every beastie I create.

My depictions are stylised, obviously inspired by the animals of our world,

but not an attempt to replicate that beauty and perfection.

Instead the idea of a specific species informs a more surreal interpretation, unbound by reality.
