Text in Textiles

Creating textile art using text as the inspiration

  • Started 19 Jul
  • 35 British pounds

Using a favourite piece of text – a quote, saying, extract from a book, letter, email, poem or similar as a starting point to create a piece of unique textile art. During the workshop you will be guided to develop a design that compliments the text, learn how to build up a background and how to transfer the text on to it. We will then explore various hand embroidery stitches to add the text and design on to the fabric, that are appropriate to the words before looking at ways to finish your work for display. The completed art can be used as wall art, greetings cards, book mark, cushion front – or anything else you can think of. All materials are included, but please bring your piece of chosen text and a basic embroidery kit if you have one. Suitable for all levels of experience. Refreshments are provided. The workshop runs from 6-9pm
