Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

X

Description

This course caters for all abilities, from beginners to the more experienced and I offer one to one tuition throughout the day as required. My landscape courses often use the technique of appliqué - the fabrics being attached by either an electric or hand sewing machine. You can also opt to use a very simple hand technique using collage and iron-on bonding fabrics if you do not have or do not wish to use a sewing machine. Over the course of one day, you will learn the techniques of building up a landscape using a variety of fabrics that will give depth and colour to your work. The workshops take place in my North Dorset studio which offers a safe, light and warm environment with plenty of space to spread out with onsite parking. We are on the ground floor but no wheelchair access unfortunately.

What's included in the price?

Please bring a packed lunch or visit the pub next door. All materials, hot and cold drinks and afternoon homemade cake but please bring your own sewing machine (hand or electric) if needed and any special tools you prefer to work with (e.g. scissors, though there will be plenty in the studio.) All fabrics and materials are provided.

Although I graduated with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art (painting) from West Surrey College of Art and obtained an MA Fine Art (sculpture) from the Arts University Bournemouth, I have always enjoyed working with textiles and have done so for more than 45 years. I am a practising artist and exhibit regularly as a member of the salon group of Dorset Visual Arts and Wessex Contemporary Arts as well as in larger collective exhibitions.
