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.

Lizzie Sturdy reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"A fantastic day in Imogen's beautiful house and studio... filled with tea & cake, great conversation and learning really experimental and fun techniques to take away with you. What better way to spend a day then happily creating art in such lovely surroundings!!"

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" Thank you so much! I had the most enjoyable day and was equally inspired by your work Lizzie and enjoyed catching up on, and discussing the way art education is moving in schools. I am more than happy that you will pass on the techniques of this very affordable art form and hope it will inspire many students over the next years. "

Gill Rice reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"Had a lovely day. Very welcoming, lots of help, advice, and equipment readily available. Have often admired this form of art work but had no idea how to achieve it. I was able to create a picture which I can take home to complete and be proud of. The venue is lovely and adds to the enjoyment of the experience. Thank you Imogen for renewing my enthusiasm to do creative art."

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" I was so impressed by your enthusiasm and the way you adopted this new technique to create such an interesting and textural landscape. You worked hard to build up the various elements of your image which developed so successfully over the course of the day and I feel you now have mastered another way of expressing your creativity."

sue pritchard reviewed: Textile landscape workshop in Dorset

"A brilliant day with an inspirational tutor. An abundance of fabrics to choose from and a lovely space to work in. Imogen is so generous with her time and has so much patience. I came away with my head buzzing with creative ideas and would love to go back and do the Still Life course. A plentiful supply of tea/coffee and cake/biscuits too!"

Imogen Bittner Studio responded:

" It was such a pleasure to work with you and see how your attention to detail and perfectionist approach produced such an interesting and well constructed image.The materials you selected and the way you put them together created a landscape that had both texture and perspective and I feel that you have the confidence to use this technique to produce more landscapes in the future. Lovely to work with you!"
