Service Description

The idea behind this block is to explore various processes these could be lino/gelli/silkscreen printing, fabric collage and manipulation, dyes, image transfers, chemical treatments and sometimes a touch of felt making. Most blocks cover free machine stitch. We explore processes through guided projects ie it could be mini free stitch quilts or free stitched dissolvable bowls. Often mixing up processes ie free stitching on paper prints or felt. Focus this term: This coming terms plan is still 'under construction', feel free to ask me questions if your not sure. Sessions start at 10 and technically finish at 12.30 (though give yourself a window on that time) Its a lovely group of ladies who already do this block, feel free to bob in on a Tuesday before we hit half term and check us out. New Students: Do book here, however to fully secure your space email in to arrange a deposit please (£40 - refundable if cancelled up to 2 weeks before start date). I sometimes limit available places on the website, as current students get first refusal for the next block. Do email in if it appears that there's no places. Full payment of course fees is due 2 weeks before the block starts. Continuing students: Feel free to book here and pay using the BAC's details already supplied. (2 weeks before start date please). FAQ: Do I need my own sewing machine? Nope - However most folks prefer to use and learn with their own, but either is fine. As long as I know you will need one of the studio's, its fine; just let me know from the outset. Personal machines need to be in good working order - make sure there are no signs of damage to power leads etc. Can I still do this block if I don't know free machine stitch/embroidery/thread drawing? Yes (however*) - This technique is used in most of the Creative Textile blocks. While it is possible to get a hold of the process within the course block, *I have discovered that for complete newbies to free machine stitch, it is more beneficial to provide a session solely on those processes, designed as a smaller cosy beginners day. Please book one of these sessions before the main block if it is a process that's new to you: 'Intro to Free machine Stitch' - Day Workshop. Note: If you are bringing your own machine, it needs to be in good order. You will need a free machine foot etc (more details can be found on the booking link for 'Intro to Free Machine Stitch')
