Residential Surface Pattern Design in Pembrokeshire Wales



This textile surface pattern design workshop is led by designer, illustrator, printmaker, and relief collage artist, Deborah Withey. It's a great workshop for those who may shy away from drawing but love to express their creativity in other ways and are keen to learn more about design. Want to know how to create those bold fabric designs you see in Ikea and John Lewis? The workshop combines both nature printing and the art of collage and is very hands-on and spontaneous! We'll talk about what makes a dynamic and successful fabric design and take inspiration from art history, the garden and seaside (in winter, too). You'll be monoprinting with ink, acrylic, cardboard, etc. onto calico fabric to create your own design. If you love working with texture and colour, then this is the workshop for you. For an option online 4 week course (6 hours in total), please contact me for the scheme of work.

What's included in the price?

One night's stay or 2 night stay in our lovely Wallis Cottage in historic Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. All the supplies for the workshop, but it is best for you to hunt for plain fabric in charity shops for soft cottons or plain sheets because they are wonderful to experiment on. Bring that material with you and anything else that you would like to experiment with!

What you will need

I will give you a list of things to have and use during the 4 workshops, it's surprising what creative things you can do with cardboard, so you won't be investing in expensive supplies unless you want to.
