This course is great for those with some experience in textiles and free machine embroidery. In order to get the most out of the course there is homework set and time within sessions is devoted to providing individual critique and group discussion.  An emphasis is put on group learning and students will have access to a private facebook page will which provides a communication link and a great way to discuss topics as a team as the weeks go on . Contact me before booking on for more information.

Description

Exactly what it says on the tin – this is a ten day course over a year designed to bridge the gap from initial designs to completed art work.  We will explore the techniques and tools to depict your ideas in textile art. Full, fun and practical workshops, the days runs from 10am -3.30pm and explores a multitude of methods and topics dear to my heart…using inks and sketchbook work as a starting point  – we take on projects such as painting and stitching into paper landscapes, rag books, textural techniques, machine embroidery stitches,  water soluble methods, rust dying and printing. There is homework…and most stitch is done in between studio sessions at home.  Main topic focus: Landscapes and flowers.

Fee shown of £220 is per term – two terms in a year.
