The NEW teaching website is up and running - Hurrah! You can now enrol on Experimental Textiles 1. Places are limited to 15. I will be working directly with the students
It is very exciting to be able to offer Experimental Textiles 1 as an online course. The course consists of monthly videos, group Zoom chats and monthly 1 - 1 Zoom tutorials with me. There is also a private group on my website where the students can chat and post images.
Students will also have 2 years free membership to the Experimental Textiles Video Library which will launch at the end of October.
The course will cover design, creating printing blocks from your designs using colour, drawing, collage, constructed textiles and dyeing natural and synthetic fabrics. There will also be time for students on the course to develop a finished piece of work.
Students will be able to work in the comfort of their own home/studio, in their own time. This means that you can live anywhere in the world and take part in the course.
The course begins with The Journey and other black and white exercises. It is important to work in black and white when you are designing as colour can be very distracting. Colour can be added later.
