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.

Sue Morrison reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"This was a great day of textile art.Imogen was very welcoming and encouraging and on hand to help as we progressed our work.We sat in an area full of her creations which was inspiring. On top of everything, she made us delicious cake! A really enjoyable day of arty-crafty."

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" Such hard working and motivated participation. All your extensive skills and textile experience really helped you to produce an interesting and atmospheric landscape and I hope that these methods, which you grasped so easily, will translate into many more landscapes ."

Jennie reviewed: Tree kits - textile landscapes in a box

"I have only just started work on my tree kit. Having decided to sew it by hand, I find it very relaxing as I can sit in my armchair in the same room as my bedbound husband. I love the tree and look forward to more days when I can enjoy this activity. It will inspire me to do more collage work on my favourite subject... trees."

Debbie D reviewed: Textile still life workshop

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day spent with Imogen, it felt like I was spending the day with a friend discovering new techniques and creating together. Imogen is a very supportive and encouraging tutor who guided me through the process, offering suggestions and assisting me with fabric choices. I would recommend the course just to spend the day in Imogen’s studio. It is truly beautiful space, filled with Imogen’s work and many inspiring objects for a still life study. Thank you Imogen. "

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" Dear Debbie Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was so nice to spend the day with you, I felt I had know you for years and was very impressed with your skills and speed! You made such an interesting still life which I will post shortly on my site. So nice to meet and work with you and can’t wait to see more of your work!Imogen"
