Really excited to be running the Experimental Textiles workshop at Bristol School of Art (March-April).

Join us to learn some new techniques and create some fantastic experimental samples.

  • A fab opportunity for A-Level, foundation and degree students to develop innovative portfolio samples. 

  • Great for art and design teachers looking for some fresh approaches and techniques to try out with their students.  

and

  • Exciting for novices or experienced textile practitioners, who are keen to develop and expand their textile skills.

During the five-week course we will be applying traditional textile techniques, like appliqué, embroidery and cutwork to a variety of modern materials, from plastics and non-wovens to rubbers and metals.

The course will be delivered through a series of five workshops, in which you will learn a selection of textile techniques and have time experimenting with different material combinations.

The course will be held at Bristol School of Art on Wednesdays 18.00-21.00.
