Jessica Grady - Exploring colour and pattern- contemporary mixed media embellishment using hand stitch techniques.

Hand stitch will be used to create a textile art piece combining hand stitch with some unusual mixed media  objects such as washers, die cut sequins, recycled plastics, broken jewellery, beads etc. This course will enable you to develop loose leaf sketchbook pages showcasing mark-making and pattern ideas on paper, a selection of small fabric swatches with embellishment techniques and a final textile art piece laced onto a foam board square or circle.

Jane Drummond - Hand Applique and gold

In this course, appliqued fabric will be used to lay down colour. Hand stitch will be used to add details and the edges will be finished with metal threads. The worked motif will then be cut out  and applied to another luxury fabric, ie velvet.
