Overview

If you would like to design and make your own hand stitched textiles, this is the course for you. We'll find inspiration in our surroundings, explore ideas on paper, dye our own colour palette of fabric and threads, and translate our designs using simple hand stitches.

Day one starts with a walk on the beach collecting interesting materials to inspire your work. We explore the shapes, colours, and textures using; rubbings, printing, painting, and resist techniques to inspire our own unique designs. After a delicious lunch we move on to dyeing fabric and threads.

Day two is all about stitching – whatever your ability I will help you to choose, and learn, the right stitches to enhance your unique design. Our relaxed and supportive environment means that complete beginners and experienced stitchers can work side by side.

You will take home a framed finished piece as well as a sketchbook bursting with ideas and a wide range of dyed samples for you to develop further.
