Textile Art Summer School

Learn to paint as well as  mono print with real plants and flowers and then add free motion embroidery, adding depth and texture to your picture. You will create your own original piece of textile art through paint, printing and embroidery techniques.

In the 3 day summer school I will be offering an in depth course where you will learn and experiment with all 3 elements of her art to produce a large final piece of work (40cm x 40cm)

Session 1 – will be about exploring and experimenting, using mono printing with real plants and objects to create mark making and painting techniques on practice pieces. This will be a playful session and a chance to try different ideas. Ellie will provide textile paints, plants and objects to print with and fabric to experiment on.

Session 2 – You will begin to work on your final piece considering the techniques learnt in the first session. Ellie will be on hand to advise and show some of her artwork for inspiration. The session will end with an explanation of free motion embroidery to think about for next time.

Session 3 – In this session you will be adding the free motion embroidery to your artwork. It is also possible to add applique and hand embroidery if you wish. We will finish viewing all the finished pieces and Ellie will show ideas for framing your work.

This Summer school is all about having fun and being expressive through the medium of textiles and creating you own piece of original art.

We would recommend bringing an apron.

Dates: The course is over 3 sessions 7th, 14th and 28th of June
