Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August

Seascapes form colour, line and texture providing endless inspiration for development into textile and mixed media work. You can develop skills in composition, working with abstraction and simplification, to create an impressionistic sense of place. Work with a sketchbook to create personal pieces. Expand your ideas by experimenting with layered papers, fabrics, threads and colour making tactile surfaces to work on, with various flexible free machine stitch techniques. Stretch your creative imagination on a course designed for those with machine embroidery skills who wish to develop confidence in handling colour, texture and line. Above all bring an open mind and a willingness to experiment.
There will be a materials charge of approx £15.
