Exploring textiles


Come and explore texture! This exciting 10 week course will include experimental tasters of collage, mono printing, resist painting, fusible webbing adhesion, stitch, felting, paper making and weaving. You'll spend 2 hours every week playing with textiles being led in these different techniques.

You will learn a wide variety of techniques and learn how to incorporate the visual elements of line, tone, shape, colour, texture, pattern and form into your explorations.

There will be a wide range of exciting materials provided, including fabric, ribbons, threads, beads, raffia, wire, shiny foils, copper shim & wool tops. You may like to bring some of your own materials too, to give it that extra personal touch.

Please bring an A4 wire bound sketchbook (all media cartridge paper) to use for paper based explorations, as well as to keep your textural work in. If you have time, you can always develop things further in between sessions too.

You will be shown the work of other textiles artists to help inspire you on your textural journey.

This will be a fun and informal atmosphere suitable for all levels, from complete beginners to anyone who would like to develop their knowledge of textiles techniques.

This workshop will be led by Sarah H
