I’m a Textile Artist living on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, and I run Embroidery & Textile Art workshops at my home studio overlooking the beautiful Norfolk countryside. Courses for 2019 include Butterflies on batting, Forage & Felt, Banana Paper Grids, and Eco-Dye with a Difference.
In the inspiring setting of Westonbirt Arboretum we will use fallen leaves to print unique textile designs. You will have the opportunity to create botanical prints with heat transfer paints and screen printing. You will produce samples that can be used as part of sewing projects and learn a new way of printing directly with natural leaves. You will have the opportunity to print a bag or tea towel using these techniques.
Using natural leaves, you will learn how to use sublimation papers and the heat press to create stunning, unique printed textile designs. You will experiment with layering leaves and incorporating foil to make fabric samples that can be framed as artwork or used in sewing projects. A day of exploration and fun with textiles in an inspiring setting.
Ceramicists Abi Higgins and Alison West are running 5 weekend courses throughout the year.

Come and join us for a great fun, experimental weekend!
In this half day workshop you will learn to create repeat patterns and consider design placement on fabric using a selection of woodblocks. You will print a piece of linen 40cm x 40 cm with your chosen block, that can be used as a cushion cover or bag.
Using Autumn Leaves as inspiration, explore colour, patterns and textures to create your own unique fabrics. Over the three weeks we will use screen printing, foils and transfer printing: combining techniques you will develop your own creative ideas and produce some beautiful Autumn designs.
In this half day workshop you will learn to use traditional Block Printing techniques to create stunning designs.
