Creative Textile Short Course

This hand-stitch focused course will explore a variety of ‘slow’ textile techniques, using traditional skills as inspiration. Intricate mending and old quilt samples from the collection of the tutor will be provided for inspiration and we will be looking at these and learning to ‘read’ them. Making connections between the fabrics, fibres and threads that we use, we will then explore simple stitching, plain-sewing and patching techniques. There will be opportunities to explore the pleasure and wellbeing benefits that can be found from slow textile processes. This course will encourage a reflective way of working and will lead to resonant, personal pieces of work
