If you love playing and experimenting with textiles this course is perfect for you. We will mostly be creating samples but there will be plenty of suggestions for how you can use them in dressmaking, up-cycling, interiors and art. You can use the chapters as prompts, then go off for hours/days exploring more possibilities. It kept growing as I filmed it and I don't think you could possibly finish it in a weekend :) it's more like a 6 week course now! It's amazing, once you start playing, how the ideas begin to flow. Once purchased the course can be taken at your own pace, there will be the opportunity to ask questions and share work both within the course and in a private facebook group.

What's included in the price?

The course is like a library of video techniques with chapters on making vessels, grids, weaves, edgings, lace and more. Basically everything I have learnt about water soluble fabric from 25 years of playing and selling my work to international design houses. You can also watch the Zoom recordings of our virtual meet ups. I love chatting about our textile adventures and answering any questions you might have.

Based in Gloucestershire, I create the seeds of ideas for both fashion and interior textiles. I love to re-imagine and combine techniques including applique, needle felting and patchwork; selling my work internationally to clients including Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. I have exhibited across the UK and published six books. I graduated from Loughborough College of Art with a 1st class honours degree in Multi-Media Textiles before completing my Masters in Fashion at Central St Martins.
