Textile Art 2-day course with Ellie Hipkin
Join local artist Ellie Hipkin in a playful two day workshop exploring textile mixed media techniques to produce a stunning abstract artwork.
Day 1: This will be a playful day spent exploring and experimenting. You’ll learn how to apply textile paints directly onto natural fabrics, create textual marks and use real plants and objects to create a range of monoprinting effects. Creating a painted textural abstract background with stunning natural imprints with plants and objects.
Day 2: The second day is all about adding free motion embroidery. First building your confidence on practice pieces, you’ll then add texture and movement to your artwork through free motion embroidery. You may also choose to add appliqué and hand embroidery. We will end the course by viewing all the finished pieces, with tips for framing your work.
