Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August

This year's course will be based on the theme of woodland, forests and all things tree related. The wonderful rough textures of bark and the endless variety of natural colours and leaf patterns will inspire and inform our samples. Students will learn how to design and make their own stencils for use in this project, use a variety of mixed media techniques on textiles including foiling, impressions, printing and embellishing with stitch, and also discover how to make delicate filigree leafy layers using soluble film. We will experiment with a variety of thread thickness and woodland colours using hand and machine embroidery. We will build up layers using a shadow box for peeping into a mysterious leafy world.
There will be a £12 materials cost.
