Textile painting and Free Motion Embroidery
This course will offer the opportunity to create Artwork using a variety of textile techniques. Each week will give the opportunity to experiment with a particular process, such as hand painting on to fabric using acrylics, gouache and water colour as well as mark making with found objects. There will also be the chance to learn how to use free motion embroidery with a sewing machine to draw with stitch and create surface textures, along with slow stitch (Hand Stitch).
The course will allow participants to create a collage using reclaimed fabrics, which are over painted/dyed to create a unique piece of Artwork.
