Maker's bio

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.

Lavinia reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"I had a wonderful day , Imogen was inspiring , patient and so easy to be with. Great fun learning to work with all sorts of fabrics. Using a hand machine gave so much more control with fabric manipulation and has inspired me to continue experimenting at home. "

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" I had a lovely day too Lavinia! It was so nice to work with you and hear our old machines stitching together. You understood the processes and translated them into a colourful landscape and I am sure that you will be able to take these techniques further and experiment more with your hand sewing machine. Thank you for coming! "

Cheryl reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"I had a wonderful day with Imogen. Her studio is a relaxing space and she is so friendly and welcoming. I was the only student so we had time to chat and she was attentive and helpful with the piece I worked on. Fantastic array of fabrics to choose from and good advice from Imogen on colour and form particularly. Highly recommend. "

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" I really enjoyed the day too ,watching how your landscape developed and how your own embroidery skills combined so well with my techniques and enhanced the fabrics that you used. I feel sure you will go on to make some really accomplished and exciting work- thank you again for coming and making it such a relaxed and enjoyable day!"

Carol Owen reviewed: Textile still life workshop

"Imogen was so welcoming and we had a fantastic day designing and making our collages. Imogen is so talented and we felt privileged to be guided by her in her lovely studio. We were surrounded by Imogen's art and lots of inspiration for our own work - the perfect creative setting. Amazing cake too!! Highly recommended. "

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" Thank you so much Carol, I really enjoyed working with you too- such talented ladies! I was very impressed with your confident approach and the pictures that you made- quite unique, using a variety of fabrics in bold designs. A very enjoyable day and thank you both for coming so far!"

Loraine Sherlock reviewed: Textile still life workshop

"This as the third workshop I have done with Imogen and each time I have come away feeling totally inspired having learnt new techniques at each session. Her studio is as welcoming as Imogen herself and a great ‘arty’ space in which to immerse yourself for the day. It is comfortable and warm, and you are surrounded by her beautiful colourful textiles that encourage you to create your own. Imogen is a patient and encouraging tutor, generous both with her materials and time. I would thoroughly recommend her creative workshops as being suitable for both beginners and more experienced crafts people."

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" Thank you so much for your warm review Loraine. It was lovely to work with you again and I especially like to see how you continue to develop your ideas and incorporate your own skills into your work even after the course has finished. You produce a very unique and exciting interpretation of your subject matter and I hope you will send me images of your work as you continue to make them.Lovely to see you again!"
